CSU scientists are looking for survivors of colorectal cancer to participate in a study to help determine the beneficial qualities of rice bran. Rice bran may be effective in colorectal cancer control and prevention.

The University of Colorado Health’s Poudre Valley Hospital Oncology Clinical Research department, CSU assistant professor Elizabeth Ryan, Erica Borresen, research associate, in the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences, and Tiffany Weir, assistant professor in Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition are working together on the project.

According to a press release form Colorado State University:

Researchers are conducting a dietary intervention study titled Bran Enriching Nutritional Eating For Intestinal Health Trial, or BENEFIT. They are seeking 40 more individuals to participate. The study is funded through a two-year grant from the National Cancer Institute-National Institutes of Health.


Eligible study participants will be asked to substitute one meal and one snack each day for 28 days. All study-provided meals were designed and evaluated by a registered dietician. Participants will also be asked to complete a dietary food log each week of the study. There will also be three required study visits in person at the beginning, middle and end of the study.

Interested participants should contact the study coordinator Borresen at or (970) 491-2100.
