Time restricted eating, metabolic health and cancer risk with Professor Dorothy Sears
This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Professor Dorothy Sears about her research into time restricted eating, metabolic health, prolonged sitting and breast cancer risk.
This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Professor Dorothy Sears about her research into time restricted eating, metabolic health, prolonged sitting and breast cancer risk. Professor Sears talks about how she got into this field of research and what her research, along with others, has discovered about the risk of breast cancer and the timing of our food intake, other lifestyle factors that contribute to breast cancer risk, and the importance of avoiding prolonged sitting for metabolic health.
Dorothy Sears is a Professor of medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Dorothy’s research focus is on obesity and risk for obesity-related diseases including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Her approach incorporates dietary and behavioral intervention, systems biology, lipidomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, expression profiling, and single gene analyses in humans and rodent models. Her goals are to identify and characterize genes, metabolites, biochemical pathways, and behaviors that regulate and/or are biomarkers of cardiometabolic disease risk and which can be used as novel targets for disease risk reduction, therapy, and/or diagnosis.
