Dr. Holly Harris Receives 2 Grants to Research Endometriosis

By March 26, 2019No Comments

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center epidemiologist Dr. Holly Harris was just awarded two grants to study endometriosis, an often painful disorder in which the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus. The condition impacts about 10 percent of U.S. women of childbearing age.

The first grant, issued by the National Institute of Nursing Research, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, spans four years and totals $1.4 million. It will allow Harris to conduct a 12-week dietary intervention among women with endometriosis in hopes of decreasing their pain and improving their quality of life.
