Our Mission: To optimize the health and survival of cancer survivors at-risk of, and living with, cancer-related cardiorespiratory toxicity and cardiorespiratory disease.

Our Focus: Our research explores the intersection of cancer-related cardiorespiratory disease and exercise therapy across the lifespan. Our work focuses on groups of cancer survivors who are vulnerable to competing mechanisms of cancer treatment- and lifestyle-related cardiorespiratory injury resulting in accelerated cardiorespiratory aging, increased cardiorespiratory disease risk, and related increases in the risk of cardiorespiratory disease-related and all-cause mortality.
