Biographical Info

Christine Sardo Molmenti, PhD, MPH, RD is a postdoctoral research scientist in the NIH/NCI R25T Cancer Epidemiology Training Program at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health at the Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Christine specializes in the epidemiology and prevention of chronic disease, particularly colorectal cancer and its major risk factors, including nutrition, sedentary behavior, and obesity. Her research is focused on the role of inflammation and how it is inextricably linked to these factors and impacts disease risk.
Notably, she recently published a paper in Cancer Causes and Control titled, “Sedentary behavior is linked to colorectal adenoma recurrence in men” and is interested in refining tools to measure sedentary behavior as well as developing/testing effective models for behavior change.
Her experience working with the Canyon Ranch and Canyon Ranch Institute has given her an appreciation for taking an “integrative approach” to health promotion and disease prevention which motivates her to consider the whole-patient/whole-person in designing interventions and delivering messages to the public.
She is looking forward to joining the Health Data Exploration Project network in order to conduct collaborative research projects that will advance public health research in the areas of sedentary behavior and inflammation as well as to develop/test novel research methods that will reduce sedentary behavior in order to reduce the US burden of chronic disease.
