MDACC Bionutrition Research Core

Overview of Services

The Bionutrition Research Core was established in 2015 as a Strategic Initiative of the Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment, which is housed in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences.  The mission of the Bionutrition Research Core is to assist investigators who examine the role of diet in cancer prevention and progression to conduct state-of-the-art nutritional science research by establishing best dietary assessment practices and by providing the resources necessary to plan and conduct human feeding studies.  We provide services to examine both the direct and indirect links between diet and cancer risk and disease along the cancer continuum in clinical, community and survivorship populations.
