Approved research

Vitamin D loci and colorectal cancer risk

Principal Investigator: Dr Shaneda Warren Andersen
Approved Research ID: 35256
Approval date: November 20th 2019

Lay summary

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.
