Welcome to the Arthur Laboratory within the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, part of the the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! The Arthur lab focuses on conducting research in the area of nutrition and cancer. Dr. Arthur’s lab conducts both observational (e.g. cohort, cross-sectional) and clinical intervention studies (randomized controlled trials) with the aim of understanding how diet and nutritional status impact cancer progression and prognosis. The long-term goal of this research is to inform the development of new medical nutrition therapies and recommendations for cancer patients and survivors, ultimately improving survival and quality of life after cancer diagnosis.
