  • Dr. Scott A. Grandy


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


Affiliate Scientist, Division of Cardiology, Dept. of Medicine, NSHA Central Zone; Research Scientist, Atlantic Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health Study

Research Interests:

Cardio-oncology, physical activity, cardiotoxicity

Dr. Grandy’s research focuses on the relationship between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer. Specifically, he is interested in how cancer treatments lead to increased risk of CVD in cancer survivors and why CVD increases the risk of certain types of cancer. He is also interested in how physical activity can be used to decrease the risk of cancer as well as reduce the cardiotoxic side effects of cancer treatments. His translational research uses a combination of preclinical, clinical and population health studies to better understand the relationship between CVD and cancer and how physical activity can be used to prevent treatment related CVD in cancer survivors. 

Involvement with BHCRI to date:

Dr. Scott Grandy is a BHCRI Associate Member
