Jessica A. Miller, PhD
Nutrimetabolomics and Cancer Prevention
Dr. Miller is an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Arizona and an Associate Member of the University of Arizona Cancer Center (UACC). Her research has focused on the bioactive food component limonene, a potential breast cancer chemopreventive found in citrus peel oil. Her research focus is moving into the area of metabolomics as a systemic approach to evaluate the effect of chemopreventive agents. Using metabolomics profiling with mass spectrometry-based techniques, she has investigated novel mechanisms and biomarkers of limonene activity after 4 weeks intervention in early stage breast cancer patients. Future work will focus on applying metabolomics to cancer prevention clinical trials in order to identify novel biomarkers of cancer risk and biomarkers in response to interventions.
