This laboratory studies the utility of different methods to characterize the chronic and long-term adverse cardiovascular side effects of conventional and novel cancer therapies. By investigating the use of these tools, we can better understand how cancer therapeutics damage organs such as the heart and skeletal muscles, as well as identify those individuals at high risk of cardiovascular side effects.
