Message from the Director
W. Elaine Hardman, Ph.D. Welcome to the Marshall University Nutrition and Cancer Center web site. It has been estimated that a third to half of all cancers are directly related to diet. West Virginia has one of the highest rates of cancer in the country, without a doubt many of these cancers could be PREVENTED by some diet and lifestyle changes. Because of this, we think this Center is especially important to Marshall University and to West Virginia. Our Center is supported by a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence award from the National Center for Research Resources. Our Genomics Core also receives partial support from an IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence award.
