March 3, 2011
Time:6-7 p.m.
Description:Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, professor in the Department of Experimental Therapeutics at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and the 2011 Jean Andrews centennial speaker, presents "Inflammation, Chronic Diseases and Nutrition: A Silent Link." A reception will follow the talk.

Nutritional Sciences faculty member Dr. Linda deGraffenried describes Aggarwal's contribution to the field of nutrition and disease: "He is considered the father of diet and cancer prevention, and is continually on the forefront of our understanding as to how diet can be used to prevent and treat cancer."

Aggarwal's research examines how oxidative stress activates inflammatory pathways leading to transformation of normal cells to tumor cells. He is researching the role dietary agents, spices like curcumins, plant-derived nutraceuticals like capsaicin and probiotics like lactobacillus reuteri, play in moderating inflammation and the efficacy of their inclusion in prevention and treatment protocols for chronic diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, Crohn's disease, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease.
