Hutchinson Center receives $8.2M to coordinate obesity and cancer consortium
Date:7/28/2011

SEATTLE The National Cancer Institute has awarded $8.2 million over the next five years to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to extend its role as the coordinating hub of a nationwide research consortium that aims to better understand the link between obesity and cancer. The $45 million, five-year initiative also will study the underlying behavioral causes of obesity and ways to prevent it, particularly among children, cancer survivors and others at high risk.

The Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer initiative, called TREC, involves a diverse team of researchers from across the United States. The network's research projects range from the biologic and physiologic mechanisms of obesity to the behavioral, socio-cultural and environmental influences on nutrition, physical activity and weight.

The principal investigator of the initiative's coordinating center is biostatistician Mark Thornquist, Ph.D., principal staff scientist in the Hutchinson Center's Public Health Sciences Division. "The idea behind TREC was to attack the problem of obesity and cancer with teams of researchers from many scientific fields, such as nutrition science, molecular epidemiology and behavioral science," he said. "By approaching the problem from many directions and collaborating across studies we hope to make scientific progress faster than more narrowly focused research. The coordinating center helps to tie all of these researchers together and enable us to collaborate more effectively."

Under Thornquist's direction the coordinating center will support communication, collaboration, and data sharing and analysis among four TREC research centers and the NCI. He has led the coordinating center since 2005, when the NCI launched the TREC initiative with $54 million in initial funding, including $5.3 million to the Hutchinson Center to establish the coordinating hub.

"NCI is very concerned about the epidemic of obesity and its implications for cancer,
