I am interested in using animal models along with human populations to investigate how exposures early in life, particularly childhood affect adult cancer risk along with the biological pathways that are affected.  Specifically, I am interested in looking at childhood obesity/nutrition and how this affects adult colon cancer risk.  I am interested in investigating the pathways that are altered by childhood obesity in particular the insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) pathway among others.  I am also interested in childhood secondhand smoke exposure as well as other childhood conditions such as asthma, and how these exposures can alter biological pathways leading to increased lung cancer risk as an adult.  I am interested in performing simultaneous studies using animal models and epidemiological studies to investigate these questions so that what I learn in one study can help inform me of what is occurring in the other.
