Brigham names new urology chief

A Washington University surgeon who specializes in treating patients with urologic cancers will become chief of urology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital Oct. 15, the hospital announced today.

Dr. Adam Kibel, who received his medical degree at Cornell University Medical College, trained at the Brigham in the 1990s under Dr. Jerome P. Richie, the man he will replace as division chief. Richie is stepping down after 24 years and will remain at the Brigham.

Kibel’s research focuses on understanding the molecular basis of genitourinary cancers, which include prostate, bladder, kidney, and testicular cancer.
