Research Interest
An Associate Professor, Dr Tadic has remained involved in the study of geriatric urinary incontinence. Formerly supported by an NIA K23 Career Development Award, he is a member of the Geriatric Continence Research team (Drs. Resnick, Schaefer, Griffiths, and Clarkson). His primary interest is CNS control of bladder function and the effects of white matter structural changes in older subjects, as well as the impact of psychological burden/depression on the response of incontinence to therapy. Although now more focused in the clinical arena, he continues to play a role in the group’s efforts.
Clinical Interest
Dr. Tadic provides geriatric medicine consultative services at UPMC Mercy. He supports services for the UPMC Health plan beneficiaries over the age of 65.
