Our research group 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. In doing so, we can design therapeutic interventions to prevent and/or mitigate these devastating side effects.

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.
MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
Lee Jones discloses the following relationships and financial interests:
