Dr. Jones completed his Postdoctoral Fellowship in Exercise Oncology also at the University of Alberta. Dr. Jones’s research program focuses on a translational approach to: (1) evaluate the cardiovascular / functional impact of cancer therapy, and efficacy of defined exercise training to prevent and/or treat dysfunction, and (2) elucidate the effects, and underlying systemic and molecular mechanisms, of defined aerobic training on tumor progression and metastatic dissemination. His research program is supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, and U.S. Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program.
