Exercise Oncology


The Exercise Oncology Service brings together scientists and physiologists to study the effect of physical activity on cancer treatment and prognosis. For years, people with cancer and their doctors have been intrigued by the idea that something as simple as exercise could make cancer treatment more effective and allow people to recover more quickly when treatment is over.

With dedicated clinical and preclinical research teams investigating the gamut of cancer types across all stages, MSK’s Exercise Oncology Service is in a unique position to answer these questions and provide guidance to patients.
