Catherine L. Carpenter received her doctoral training in Epidemiology at UCLA. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Preventive Medicine at USC where she studied lifetime exercise, obesity, and breast cancer risk and prognosis. After completing her postdoc, she started at UC Irvine as an Assistant Professor in Cancer Epidemiology where she continued her studies in breast and lung cancer and further developed a focus on obesity and nutrition. She started at the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition in 2003, and has since broadened her research to include studies of food addiction, genetics, and the role of nutrition in the prevention and recovery from infectious diseases. My current research areas include: diet and exercise intervention studies for breast cancer prevention; the effect of protein on recovery from malnutrition and HIV; the influence of candidate genes associated with appetite and food craving in development of obesity; and lung cancer prevention through dietary consumption of cruciferous vegetables.
