This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages collaborative applications that will contribute to the identification and characterization of patients at risk of developing cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity. The primary intent is to mitigate cardiovascular dysfunction while optimizing cancer outcomes. To accomplish this, methods that evaluate cardiovascular risk prior to treatment and integrate evidence-based cancer treatment regimens with cardiovascular screening, diagnostic, and/or management strategies are sought.

Research applications should focus on mitigation/management of adverse effects associated with anti-cancer treatments including:

  • Cytotoxic chemotherapies,
  • Targeted agents,
  • Immunomodulatory therapies and
  • Radiation (that occur during cancer treatment and/or long-term survivorship) as defined by cardiac and/or vascular specific common terminology criteria for adverse events (CTCAE).
