Research activities

Dr. Bradshaw’s research interests have centered on the identification of factors related to diet, obesity and physical activity patterns that influence the risk of developing cancer and, once diagnosed, survival. He also has a keen interest in addressing quantitative methodological issues in the study of nutrition and cancer including methods to account for missing data and analysis of dietary patterns. His current work includes the identification of determinants of obesity-related comorbidities among women with breast cancer, including determinants of weight change and physical activity levels after diagnosis, as well as characterization of the relationship between metabolic syndrome and cancer incidence.
