Title: "Vitamin C, Sugar, and Colorectal Cancer"

Abstract: Dietary components are the most important environmental factors associated with the risk and mortality of colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the molecular mechanisms that link the diet and CRC remain largely unknown. In this seminar, I will provide evidence for how two dietary factors, vitamin C and sugar impact upon CRC pathogenesis. Ultimately, understanding the molecular basis for the interaction of diet, genetics and CRC will help facilitate discovery of novel strategies to prevent and treat CRC.
