Park receives R01 NCI funds to study dietary patterns


Yikyung Park, ScD, associate professor of surgery, has received a three-year, $969,000 R01 grant from the National Cancer Institute. The project, Temporal Dietary Patterns: Development and Evaluation against Adiposity and Metabolic Biomarkers, will identify dietary patterns based on when and how often people eat during a day and will evaluate if those patterns are associated with metabolic biomarkers and obesity. Dr. Park will collaborate with Jr-Shin Li, PhD, professor of electrical and systems engineering, to use machine learning methods to identify these temporal dietary patterns.
