Colin Champ Research

My research interests mostly revolve around enhancing cancer treatment with lifestyle modification including a healthy diet and exercise. My personal interests revolve around avoiding cancer and following a healthy lifestyle. As a radiation oncologist and researcher, I have authored and co-authored many peer-reviewed articles, and I am an invited reviewer for many journals. My proudest accomplishments are my papers that take a critical look at our nutritional guidance for patients.
