Dr. Clinton is a physician-scientist who has devoted his career to research in cancer etiology and prevention. His laboratory program has published extensively upon the role of dietary energy balance and obesity in cancer risk, in addition to a variety of foods associated with cancer prevention properties, such as hops, tomatoes, soy, and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage), as well as several nutrients including vitamin D, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E. His laboratory has expertise in molecular biology, cellular and experimental models of carcinogenesis, as well as human clinical trials. These studies are often done in collaboration with scientists in other disciplines at Ohio State, such as the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, in a coordinated "crops to clinic" research effort.
