Adriana Vidal, PhD

Associate Professor, Surgery

The research interest of Adriana Vidal, PhD, focuses on environmental exposures that may influence cancer racial disparities in minority populations. Cervical and prostate cancers disproportionately affect African-Americans. During the past years Vidal has worked in epidemiologic studies on environmental, infectious and dietary exposures linked to cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and prostate cancer risk. Her most recent projects are aimed at understanding how inflammation caused by infectious agents and dietary carcinogens may in part be responsible for the disproportionally higher prostate and cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates in African-Americans. She has written and co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed publications on subjects including the relationship of environmental exposures, genetics and epigenetics, and cancer in multiethnic cohorts. Vidal earned bachelor's and doctoral degrees in biology from the Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina. She then received a Fogarty International Center fellowship from the National Institutes of Health to do postdoctoral studies at Dartmouth Medical School. Prior to joining the faculty in the Cedars-Sinai Department of Surgery, Vidal was an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Urology at Duke University School of Medicine.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
