|Bradshaw, epidemiology researcher, selected as AICR fellow|
|November 20, 2011|
Patrick Bradshaw, PhD, postdoctoral epidemiology researcher at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, has been awarded the Marilyn Gentry Fellowship in Nutrition and Cancer, funded by the American Institute of Cancer Research (AICR).
Bradshaw's research interests center on identifying lifestyle characteristics, particularly modifiable ones such as diet, weight and physical activity, which influence breast cancer risk and survival. He is interested in the development and application of novel quantitative epidemiologic methods and how they might be used to understand the relationship between diet, obesity, exercise and chronic disease.
He also is supported by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to identify and characterize risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including weight change and physical activity patterns, among breast cancer survivors.
"Patrick is such a thoughtful and energetic scientist," said June Stevens, PhD, AICR/World Cancer Research Fund Distinguished Professor of nutrition and chair of the department. "It is my honor to mentor him as a Marilyn Gentry Fellow." Stevens is also professor of epidemiology at the UNC public health school.
The AICR fellowship, established in 2001, is awarded to a junior scientist who shows signs of becoming a leader in diet and cancer research.
