Research Interests & Projects
Alison Mondul has devoted her scientific career to studying the role of modifiable risk factors in the etiology of cancer. In particular, her main focus has been how factors related to diet and nutrition, such as micronutrients and lipids, may influence prostate and other genitourinary cancers and conditions, and how genetic factors may contribute to or modify these associations. She has focused on vitamins A, D, and E, and β-carotene, as well as the role of common medications in relation to risk of cancer, including prostate cancer.
