Earl Harrison, PhD, Dean’s Distinguished Professor in the Department of Human Sciences at Ohio State, is a member of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program at the OSUCCC – James, where his research focuses on vitamin A and its intestinal absorption, transport and metabolism.

In particular, Dr. Harrison seeks to define the proteins involved in the uptake and metabolism of dietary carotenoids in the intestine.

One of his recent studies indicates that some beta-apocarotenoids act through other mechanisms to influence 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation.

Dr. Harrison has co-authored many articles in well-respected publications, including the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics and American Journal of Physiology: Heart and Circulatory Physiology.
