Carrie Daniel-MacDougall

As an Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Director of MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Bionutrition Research Core, my long-term goal is to refine and inform evidence-based dietary recommendations across the cancer continuum. Building on my training at Emory University, the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute, my research at MD Anderson is increasingly motivated by the many unanswered questions and complexities surrounding nutrition, obesity, and the microbiome in our patients. Together with clinical and laboratory colleagues, we carefully collect data and “observe” habits, while pushing forward to more definitively answer these questions in dietary intervention trials.
