Kimberly Ziemer Robien Faculty Member

Positions

I am a nutrition scientist, cancer epidemiologist, and Registered Dietitian who is board certified in Oncology Nutrition. I am also a member of the GW Cancer Center, and a fellow with the Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness. The two overarching goals of my research are to: 1) better understand how changes in diet and body composition could be used to minimize treatment-related toxicity and maximize effectiveness of existing cancer treatment regimens, and 2) identify and eliminate sources of disparities in cancer treatment outcomes. I received my PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Washington in 2003, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in molecular epidemiology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Prior to joining the GW faculty in 2012, I was faculty with the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health (2005-2012), where I was awarded tenure as an Associate Professor in 2011. I was also an active member of the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center, one of the 71 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers (https://www.cancer.gov/research/infrastructure/cancer-centers) across the country. I have authored more than 135 peer-reviewed research publications, and serve on the Editorial Board for Nutrition in Clinical Practice.
