Dr. Clinton is a physician-scientist at The Ohio State University dividing his effort between clinical care and research. He directs the Genitourinary Oncology for The James Cancer Hospital and manages the Prostate Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic. Dr. Clinton is Program Leader of Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention for the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Clinton has an active research program focusing on understanding the development of prostate cancer, and its prevention and treatment. One research area emphasizes the impact of dietary patterns, specific foods and nutrients on prostate cancer risk. These studies are often conducted in collaboration with other disciplines at OSU, such as food science and agriculture, in a coordinated “crops to clinic” research effort. The lab team has expertise in molecular biology, cellular and experimental models of carcinogenesis, and human clinical trials, providing an excellent example of contemporary translational cancer research.
