Dr. Johanna Lampe’s research interests relate to the mechanisms by which components of diet, particularly constituents of plant foods, alter susceptibility to and risk of cancer. Her primary research activities include using controlled dietary interventions in humans to determine how individual variation in the gut microbiome and biochemical response to high plant food diets (e.g., biotransformation enzyme modulation, colonic gene expression changes) may explain differences in disease risk. Her laboratory also collaborates with other groups to characterize the gut microbiome in various population-based studies.
