Todd M. Morgan, M.D. is a urological surgeon specializing in the treatment of genitourinary malignancies. Dr. Morgan is originally from Seattle, WA, and completed his undergraduate and medical training at Harvard University. He returned to the Northwest in 2003 for his urology residency at the University of Washington, before moving to Nashville for his fellowship training in urological oncology at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Morgan is a translational surgeon-scientist, and his research spans the spectrum from preclinical laboratory-based research to prospective clinical trials. The primary focus of his laboratory is on identifying key pathways that predict response and resistance to treatment in genitourinary malignancies. This includes work in prostate cancer to develop liquid biopsy approaches that can guide precision-based therapeutic strategies in real time, as well as ongoing research in renal cell carcinoma to identify genomic signatures for risk stratification.
Dr. Morgan is currently an Associate Professor of Urology and has been at the University of Michigan since 2012. In addition to his research pursuits, he is a busy clinician and surgeon offering advanced robotic, laparoscopic, and open surgical approaches for patients with genitourinary malignancies. He has substantial expertise in the use and interpretation of molecular biomarkers, which can help guide individualized treatment choice for some patients.
Beyond work, he loves his time enjoying the great town of Ann Arbor and beautiful state of Michigan with his wife, Wendy, and their two young boys. Whether camping in Petoskey, sitting on a beach in Grand Haven, or biking around the neighborhood in Ann Arbor, the Morgan family has quickly learned that life in the Midwest is hard to beat.
