Adam B Murphy, MD, MBA

Instructor in Urology


Currently, I am on faculty at Northwestern University in the Department of Urology and at Jesse Brown VA Medical Center. My current research is in collaboration with Dr. Rick Kittles, Ph.D. at UIC and involves studying the connection between vitamin D deficiency and prostate cancer risk and aggressiveness. I am also working on a study determining the risk of prostate cancer among HIV infected men.
