Dr. Travis Hrubeniuk’s research stems from the development and management of The Manitoba Tomorrow Project. As part of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health, The Manitoba Tomorrow Project is a longitudinal population cohort composed of 10,000 Manitobans, with the goal of increasing our knowledge of the causes of cancer and other chronic diseases over time.
More specifically, Dr. Hrubeniuk aims to investigate the relationships between, and the impact of various levels of, physical activity, exercise, and sedentary behaviour on cancer and chronic disease throughout the lifespan and the subsequent influences on public health policy.
