An internationally recognized head and neck cancer researcher and faculty leader, Carol R. Bradford, M.D., M.S., is the executive vice dean for academic affairs for the University of Michigan Medical School. She also holds the Charles J. Krause, M.D., Collegiate Professorship in Otolaryngology and is a professor of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery.

A longtime member of the University of Michigan community, Bradford earned her B.S. in cellular and molecular biology, her M.S. in microbiology/immunology and M.D. degrees at U-M. She then completed an otolaryngology-head and neck surgery residency at the U-M before joining the faculty in 1992. She became department chair in 2009, a position she held until she was appointed EVDAA on July 1, 2016. Under her leadership, the department’s faculty grew from 40 to 55 members, and the Otolaryngology Residency Program was rated the nation’s top otolaryngology training program among public institutions, according to the Doximity Residency Navigator.

Dr. Bradford specializes in head and neck cancer surgery, focusing her research on identifying and evaluating biomarkers that can predict outcomes. She works to develop therapies to combat certain types of head and neck cancer that are resistant to traditional forms of treatment.

Her many awards include a Distinguished Service Award from the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery in 2007, the Clinical Excellence Award from Castle Connolly National Physician of the Year Awards in 2009 and the University of Michigan Medical School’s Community Service Award in 2010.
