Research Program. Precision Nutrition and Cancer
Objectives: The objective of this Program is to study the molecular bases explaining how diet and lifestyle constitute key factors in cancer prevention or exert essential unction as coadjutants for cancer treatments during and after therapy.
Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of cancer in which nutritional strategies might play a key role. Knowledge of the precise (molecular) mechanism of action of bioactive compounds present in foods, the metabolic profile and its impact in the personal susceptibility to develop cancer or to respond to specific treatments, as well as the development of personalized nutritional strategies for specific conditions, will result in highly effective products and strategies for an integrative precision approach for cancer patients.
