Dr Yves Fradet graduated from Laval University (Quebec, Canada) in 1981 and completed an oncology fellowship at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, with Drs Willet Whitmore and Lloyd Old. In 1983 he founded, at the Laval University Cancer Research Center, a translational and clinical research laboratory  in urological cancers whose work are supported continuously for more than 30 years.

Dr Fradet still has a very active practice in uro-Oncology within the Urologic Oncology Section and the Urology Service at the CHU de Québec- Hôtel-Dieu de Québec where he has grouped a team of specialists among the most important in Canada including seven uro-oncologists, three of which are also holders of PhD.

He is a member of many national and international societies, including since 2001, the American Association of Genitourinary Surgeons in which he was invited to be part of the 75 members in America. More recently, he was appointed international honorary member of the Association of Academic European Urology, membership awarded to those who have had important influence on urology. Dr Fradet is often invited as a guest speaker at national and international meetings, as a visiting professor, and as a consultant to many organizations. He was the founding chairman of the Canadian Urologic Oncology Group from 1988 to 1995 and chairman of the Department of Surgery at Laval University from 2000 to 2008. He has authored over 330 publications and book chapters and more than 600 abstracts.
