Research Interests:
Our laboratory studies toxicological effects in everyday life that act as triggers in the formation of cancer.  We have discovered that intra-abdominal (visceral) fat can promote skin carcinogenesis in an animal model of high-fat diet-induced obesity.  We aim to identify specific mechanisms of obesity-promoted cancer with a focus on visceral fat inflammation.  Additionally, we have interests in studying the effects of components of moisturizing creams and chemicals in sunscreens on skin tumor formation.
