Dr. Fradley's research interests involve investigating cardiovascular complications associated with cancer therapy. Current research projects include a prospective trial evaluating a risk reduction program in women with breast cancer receiving cardiotoxic chemotherapy as well as several retrospective studies evaluating risk factors for the development of CHF/cardiomyopathy, hypertension and atrial fibrillation with different chemotherapy regimens. He is lso particularly interested in the development, management and prevention of arrhythmias associated with cancer therapy.
