The Exercise Oncology Service (Ex-Onc) conducts clinical trials to study the efficacy of structured exercise training interventions on cardiovascular outcomes in individuals before and during cancer treatment, as well as following the completion of therapy, across a broad range of cancer diagnoses.
The second major focus of our program is investigating whether exercise training is an effective treatment for cancer. We adopt traditional laboratory approaches to elucidate the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise training on cancer progression as well as to determine whether exercise alters the response to conventional and novel cancer therapeutics. This information allows us to design more-effective clinical trials that test a precise "dose" of exercise in selected patient populations most likely to benefit from exercise training.
Committed and eager to embrace new opportunities and tough challenges with a sense of urgency, high energy, and enthusiasm.
Adept at creating partnerships and working collaboratively with others to meet shared objectives and goals.
An effective communicator, capable of determining how best to reach different audiences and carrying out communications based on that understanding.
