Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer

 

The objective of the UCSD TREC Center is to enhance knowledge of the role of insulin resistance and inflammation, from the cell to the community, underlying the association between energetics and breast cancer. We also propose to explore and integrate the etiology of obesity and relevant health behavior theories, with broad population impact at the social-environmental and policy levels for prevention and control of obesity.
