EDGE Research Laboratory

The Exercise, Diet, Genitourinary and Endocrinology (EDGE) Research Laboratory conducts innovative research in areas impacting community health.

What We Do

The vision of the EDGE lab is to use diet and physical activity to give patients a competitive EDGE when they are fighting cancer. Our mission is to conduct innovative, cutting "EDGE" medical nutrition science research that seeks answers to practical, relevant and patient-centered health concerns.

The EDGE research laboratory also aims to prepare graduate students to be leaders in nutrition and to strive for excellence with content expertise, an innovative mindset and a professional voice. Our laboratory reaches out to our patients and the community to educate and empower people to make healthy lifestyle choices.
