Dr. Ng will disentangle the web of data surrounding the role of dietary and lifestyle factors for primary prevention of colorectal cancer in healthy individuals, as well as for secondary prevention of recurrence and treatment of established colorectal cancer patients. She will establish an evidenced-based framework for how to counsel patients about the dietary and lifestyle behaviors that may reduce the risk of developing colorectal cancer and improve prognosis in colorectal cancer patients.
