USC Center for Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC)
The overall aim of this project is to establish a transdisciplinary center to address the physiological, metabolic, behavioral, genetic, and environmental influences on obesity, metabolic health, and cancer risk with a focus on minority children. The Center will be directed by two distinguished and internationally known investigators in obesity and cancer research (Michael Goran, PhD and Leslie Bernstein, PhD). Drs. Goran and Bernstein lead a coherent and synergistic program of three projects, two pilot studies, three research cores, and a training core, each led by collaborative teams of investigators from diverse disciplines.
