Dr. Vincent Fradet (MD, PhD, FRCSC) is an uro-oncologist with a focused clinical practice at CHU de Québec-Laval University. He completed his medical training at Université de Montréal with an MD and residency in urology. He pursued with 5 years of subspecialty and research training. He obtained his uro-oncology accreditation from the Society of Urologic Oncology at the University of California, in San Francisco (UCSF) and completed a PhD in Clinical Research/Epidemiolgy (University de Montréal). Dr. Fradet has been an Associate Professor at Laval University since 2009, and is a regular researcher at the Laval University Cancer Research Center and at INAF (Institute for Nutrition and functional Food).

Dr. Fradet’s research goal is to improve our understanding of the links between lifestyle factors, including dietary omega-3 fatty acids and exercise, quality of life parameters, inflammation, and oncogenic pathways in prostate cancer, to progressively develop personalized preventive and treatment strategies. To that end, Dr. Fradet has built a unique biobank of bio-samples, developed pre-clinical models (mouse and primary cells in culture) and is running some clinical studies. All the epidemiological, clinical, and molecular (translational) projects led by his team are focused on improving our understanding of the biological mechanisms and the impact on quality of life of prostate cancer, as well as on developing biomarkers (urinary, blood, epigenetics, molecular and/or cellular) to be used in future intervention studies to stratify or select and monitor patients.
