Lavanya Kondapalli, MD

Director of Cardio-Oncology

Cardio-oncology is an emerging field in cardiology focused on the cardiovascular management of patients with cancer. Established in 2014, the cardio-oncology program at the University of Colorado is the only one in the region led by a fellowship trained cardio-oncologist. We manage all aspects of cardio-oncology care surrounding solid and hematologic malignancies including stem cell transplant, pregnancy, childhood cancer survivorship, and adult survivorship.

A National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, the University of Colorado Cancer Center is a leader in phase I clinical trials which makes practicing and learning cardio-oncology at the University of Colorado a unique and exciting experience. In addition to a robust clinical program, we are involved in several cardio-oncology research studies including the multi-institutional study,

Understanding and Predicting Breast Cancer Events After Treatment (UPBEAT) and institutional studies focused on immunotherapy, exercise in patients with cancer, and the cardiovascular effects of lymphoma treatment.

We lead, “Onco-X: A Multidisciplinary Case Conference” which is a quarterly conference bringing together specialists in vascular-oncology, nephro-oncology, geri-oncology, endo-oncology, derm-oncology, survivorship, etc.

We are looking to expand our program and intend to offer formal cardio-oncology fellowship training in the coming years.
