Assistant Professor of Surgery, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Vidal's research interest focuses on environmental exposures that may influence cancer racial disparities. Prostate cancer disproportionately affects African-American men. Dr. Vidal' s projects are aimed at understanding how inflammation -caused by infectious agents and dietary carcinogens, may be in part responsible for the disproportionally higher prostate cancer incidence and mortality rates in African American men. She has written and co-authored over fifty peer-reviewed publications, including on the relationship of environmental exposures, genetics and epigenetics and cancer in multiethnic cohorts.

Dr. Vidal earned a bachelor' s and a doctorate' s degree in biology from the Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina. She then was the recipient of a NIH Fogarty International Center fellowship to do postdoctoral studies at Dartmouth Medical School in the USA. Prior to joining Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Vidal was an assistant professor in the Division of Urology, Department of Surgery at Duke University School of Medicine.
