About Bradley Webster


I was appointed to the faculty at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in June 2023 as a member of both the Department of Urology and Department of Cell Stress Biology. Prior to this, I completed my undergraduate studies in biomedical engineering at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY (2004). I then completed my MD/PhD training at the University of New Mexico in 2015.  As part of my PhD training, my dissertation research was performed at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, where I studied metabolism and mitochondrial biology. I then completed my internship in General Surgery (2016) and residency in Urology (2020) at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM. Most recently in 2023 and prior to joining Roswell Park, I finished my clinical and research fellowship in Urologic Oncology at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD.
