The goal of this project is to determine how genetic variation influences blood levels of vitamin D. Results from previous studies suggests that higher levels of vitamin D may lower risk of many diseases, including colorectal cancer. We will also evaluate how the genetic variants that control vitamin D levels are related to colorectal cancer risk. The project duration is 12 months.
