W. Greg Hundley, M.D., from Wake Forest School of Medicine, presents Statins as Cardio Protective Agents for Patients Receiving Cardiotoxic Cancer Therapy.

W. Gregory Hundley, MD is currently a Professor of Internal Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine. Over the past 20 years, he has been utilizing magnetic resonance imaging and other imaging technologies to study the evolution of cardiovascular disease and congestive heart failure in elderly people. He has accomplished these through a continuous series of NIH grant awards and large, population-based studies. Specifically, three of his grants have focused on the etiology and early evolution of cardiovascular injury after chemotherapy, allowing his team to develop additional expertise in assessing both cardiac and vascular dysfunction measures and exercise capacity in women at risk of cardiovascular injury that received treatment for breast cancer.

Dr. Hundley has over 190 peer-reviewed articles that focus on research in this area, and serves as the lead author on the consensus statement of the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology and American College of Radiology regarding the use of magnetic resonance imaging to study patients with cardiovascular disease. He also serves as an Associate Editor for Circulation and Cardiology Today.
