  • Cullman Chemoprotection Center

    Research in the Cullman Chemoprotection Center focuses on developing nutritional strategies for chronic disease prevention in humans. Our work draws from natural product chemistry, enzymology, nutritional epidemiology and clinical research. A number of our studies look at the glucosinolates and isothiocyanates found in cruciferous vegetables and in Moringa oleifera, also known as the “drumstick tree.” Our team has found that broccoli sprouts are a rich source of the enzyme inducers that detoxify carcinogens and that two of the inducers — sulforaphane in broccoli and isothiocyanate in Moringa oleifera — act as strong antibiotics against Helicobacter pylori, which can cause peptic ulcer disease and stomach cancer.
