We are currently developing and validating risk prediction models for colorectal cancer and adenomatous polyps within the colon. We are particularly interested in the relative contribution of established lifestyle (diet, NSAIDs, body mass, physical activity) and familial risk factors in contrast to biomarkers. Of particular interest are markers of DNA methylation and microRNAs. For additional information on this project, please contact Dr. Brenner.
