Dr. Ahnen’s research interests included the biologic and the biochemical mechanisms of the chemopreventive effects of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). He was examining the effect of NSAIDs on EGF receptor expression and function. His clinical trials group participated in several colorectal cancer prevention trials including several adenoma chemoprevention trials. He also collaborated with Al Marcus PhD and staff at the AMC Cancer Research Center to evaluate behavioral interventions to increase colorectal cancer screening rates in high-risk populations and he directed the Colorado site for two national cancer registries that identify high risk families for genetic and clinical trials.
