Dr. Knobloch's interests include the mechanisms of molecular carcinogenesis and their interaction with food-based cancer risk reduction strategies following a "Bench to Bedside," "Crop to Clinic," and "Farm to Pharma" philosophy. Dr. Knobloch's work currently emphasizes the role of black raspberry and strawberry phytochemicals and their associated bioactive derivatives and metabolites. His research efforts focus on defining translationally relevant molecular profiles that occur during the multistep process of oral carcinogenic progression in a manner that will advance the understanding of food-based intervention strategies for health promotion and disease prevention.
