Research Focus  

Dr. Kerryn Reding’s research focuses on breast cancer, with particular interests in cancer prevention involving nutrition, exercise, and biomarkers of risk, as well as reducing racial disparities in breast cancer.

Research projects are focused on improving dietary and exercise habits among women at high-risk of breast cancer, and ancillary studies focused on an estrogen biomarker with relevance to cancer initiation. Her work in cancer disparities includes investigations of biologic and social factors contributing to racial differences in cancer mortality.  She recently partnered with Cierra Sisters, a community-based breast cancer support group, on a focus group project to learn more about the experiences of African American breast cancer survivors during their diagnosis and treatment.
