Research Interest

Dr. Allred’s research focuses on the ability of diet to influence the development and progression of several forms of cancer. Dr. Allred is an expert in the area of understanding the role that plant-derived compounds play in the development and progression of epithelial derived cancers. He has published many manuscripts in this area, which have significantly impacted the understanding of the physiological role of these compounds.

Dr. Allred is also investigating the role of estrogen receptor beta (ERb) in colon cancer development and growth. He is interested in elucidating whether ERb modulates the protective effects of estrogen in colon cells. Also, he is exploring the physiological actions of compounds in the diet that exhibit estrogen-like responses and studying the ability of these compounds to function through the estrogen receptor.


Research Area

Investigate the role of hormones and dietary compounds on the development and growth of cancers of the colon and breast.
