    Dr. Bradaric is the current Director of Pharmacology at Rush University Medical College. He attended Lewis University in Romeoville, IL and obtained a BS in biology. He then attended Rush University and earned a PhD in pharmacology. After completing a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Chicago, he began teaching pharmacology at Chicago State’s College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutic Sciences. His research background in ovarian cancer led him to multidisciplinary fields, such as tumor immunology and molecular pathology, as well as drug discovery for cancer therapy.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
