The Harvard TREC Annual Conference will provide an overview of the Harvard TREC research center highlighting the role of collaborative, transdisciplinary science in investigating the relationship between obesity and cancer. We will focus on understanding the risk factors, disease pathways and links between obesity and cancer through discussions on the role of epigenetics, health disparities, metabolomics, biomarkers and genetic markers. The conference will provide the framework for understanding the link between obesity and cancer and a discussion on the development of strategies for the prevention and control of these conditions.
