Urologic Oncology Research Program

The Urologic Oncology Program forms multidisciplinary teams of skilled specialists to diagnose and provide optimum care for individual patients with urologic cancers, including bladder, prostate, penile, urethral, renal and testicular. To enhance the care of these patients, the department emphasizes a comprehensive program of both clinical and laboratory research. Clinical research programs are aimed primarily at enhancing tumor detection and therapy, while laboratory programs focus on understanding the mechanisms of tumor progression and developing new intervention strategies.

The Urologic Oncology Research Program is an integrated effort which includes both basic science Ph.D. investigators as well as physician scientists who emphasize the translation of basic research to clinical applications. The program collaborates extensively with investigators in other areas such as the Departments of Behavioral Science, Biomathematics, Cell Biology, Cellular Oncology, Epidemiology, Genitourinary Medical Oncology, Pathology, Radiation Oncology and Molecular and Cellular Oncology.
