Dr. Marian Neuhouser conducts studies to investigate the role of lifestyle factors, including diet, physical activity, and energy balance, in the etiology and prevention of cancer. Her research portfolio includes a variety of observational and intervention studies focused on improving methods for dietary and physical activity assessment, understanding the extent to which diet and physical activity patterns influence intermediate endpoints or biomarkers that may be on the causal pathway to cancer, and investigating whether adoption or maintenance of specific lifestyle habits and diet quality will decrease risk of cancer incidence, cancer recurrence, or cancer-specific mortality. Neuhouser focuses particularly on breast and prostate cancer and has a special interest in health disparities and nutritional disparities in special populations. Neuhouser was a member of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.
