Dr. Spees’ focus of research involves targeting interventions aimed at providing optimal nutrition for cancer prevention and chronic disease in disparate populations. In this capacity, Dr. Spees has initiated multiple studies in collaboration with the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and Columbus Neighborhood Health Centers.  Dr. Spees is PI of OSU’s Food Innovation Center’s Hunger.FOOD.Health Initiative. Her team includes experts in social work, public health, nutrition, crop and food science, medicine, policy and business that seek to improve access to culturally appropriate, health-promoting foods for food insecure families across Central Ohio by impacting food availability, food access, food quality, and food use. Dr. Spees is also a member of OSU’s prestigious Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC).  Her cancer laboratory focuses on evaluating biomarkers of nutritional and dietary interventions in experimental and human carcinogenesis.  Her current projects include assessing nutritional and environmental exposures associated with cancer survivorship and individuals affected by germline mutations.  At the invitation of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Dr. ​Spees recently authored a book chapter on “Nutritional Genomics and Cancer.” In 2011, she launched OSU’s first Nutritional Genomics graduate course in the College of Medicine.​
