Lisa Yee, MD, is a member of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program at OSUCCC – James, where her research focuses on gene-nutrient interactions affecting development and progression of breast cancer.

In particular, she is investigating the mechanisms by which dietary fat content affects HER-2/neu signal transduction in mammary carcinogenesis.

One of her recent studies evaluated the effect of n-3 PUFA supplements in women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer. It showed that fish is an excellent source of n-3 PUFAs that increase breast adipose EPA and DHA similar to supplements.

Dr. Yee has co-authored many articles in well-respected publications, including International Journal of Cancer, Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, Psycho-Oncology and Health Psychology.
