  • Dr. Scott Grandy


Assistant Professor, School of Health & Human Performance and Department of Pharmacology, Dalhousie University


Affiliate Scientist, Division of Cardiology, Dept. of Medicine, NSHA Central Zone

Research Interests:

Cardio-oncology, physical activity, cardiotoxicity

Dr. Grandy’s research investigates the relationship between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer, specifically how cancer treatments lead to increased risk of CVD in cancer survivors. Dr. Grandy also examines the protective effects of exercise, in regards to CVD associated with cancer treatment, at the cellular level (animal models) and in clinical populations. His translational research combines both cellular and applied approaches to better understand the efficacy of exercise as an intervention to prevent CVD in cancer survivors.
