Cardio-Oncology Program

A major limitation for successful cancer therapies and a major factor of cancer related morbidity and mortality is the cardiac function. Moreover, cardiac disease and many cancer entities share common risk factors. However, knowledge about cardioprotective therapies, potential biomarkers and molecular mechanisms is limited.


The Cardio-Oncology program of the University Hospital of Heidelberg aims at investigating common risk factors for cardiotoxicity, molecular mechanisms and translational approaches.


We work together with specialists from the National Center for Tumor Disease, Heidelberg (NCT) to develop personalized strategies in case of potential cardiotoxic regimes.
