Chad Vezina, PhD
I am an Associate Professor of Comparative Biosciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine and a member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison George M. O’Brien Center for Benign Urology Research. I received a B.A. degree in Chemistry & Biology from St. Olaf College, a Ph.D. in Pharmacology & Toxicology from the University at Buffalo, and completed post-doctoral studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research goals are to determine how the urinary tract develops, the mechanisms responsible for prostate-related urinary dysfunction in men, and to build new research tools for microscopic image analysis and urodynamic testing in rodent models. I created and lead the UW-Madison Summer Program in Undergraduate Urology Research and serve as a regular study section member for NIH career development awards.
