Associate Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy

Angela Bradbury, MD, is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. She also holds a concurrent appointment in Medical Ethics and Health Policy. As a medical oncologist with specialized training in clinical cancer genetics, cancer prevention and medical ethics, she has been developing and leading translational genetic research focused on the ethics and clinical implementation of genetic medicine to promote the health of individuals and families since 2003. This work involves research and academic activities focused on: a) the delivery of genetic services, b) the implications of genetic medicine for children and adolescents and c) Ethical, Legal and Social Issues in genetic medicine.


The volume of genomic testing is expected to increase given the large federal and commercial investment in genomic technologies designed to enhance personalized medicine. Dr. Bradbury focuses on translational research that evaluates the implementation, dissemination, and “real world” outcomes of existing and new genomic applications as needed to guide the rational clinical integration of genomic advances to ultimately reduce the burden of cancer and improve human health. These translational and multidisciplinary studies have been supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, Greenwall Foundation Program in Bioethics, American Society of Clinical Oncology and Pennsylvania Department of Health.
