  • Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention

Research Description

Dr. Schwartz' research interests include: • Metabolic profiling, targeted and untargeted metabolomics related to food and nutrition for health; Bioavailability, metabolism, and physiological significance of carotenoids, isothiocyanates, isoflavones and other phytochemicals; Phytochemicals and bioactive components in foods related to chronic disease, oxidative stress and cancer prevention and control; Analytical methods development in food analysis; Chemistry of plant pigments, particularly chlorophylls, carotenoids, and provitamin A nutrients; and Chemical alterations of food components during processing with emphasis on substances of nutritional, toxicological and food quality significance.
