Description: Stars in Nutrition and Cancer

The aim of the lecture is to learn about the historic role that the dietary carcinogen aflatoxin has played in human liver cancer, to outline how mechanistic studies of aflatoxin has helped establish a paradigm for chemoprevention in high risk populations, and to project the emerging role of this agent in fatty liver disease and emerging data on liver cancer in Central America.

Dr. Groopman is the Anna M. Baetjer Professor of Environmental Health Sciences and Chair of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences in the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Professor of Oncology and Associate Director of the Cancer Center for Cancer Prevention and Control at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center.
