Profile

Dr. Dai has 29 years of experience in conducting large epidemiologic studies of chronic diseases. In particular, Dr. Dai has extensive expertise in nutritional and molecular epidemiologic studies. Dr. Dai’s research focus is to identify and investigate nutrient-nutrient (e.g. magnesium, calcium, vitamin D and phytochemicals) and gene-nutrition and gene-phytochemical interactions in the etiology of cancer and other chronic diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) and to subsequently develop precision-based prevention strategies.
