Basic and Translational Research

Research At URMCOur basic and translational research programs focus on discovering the cellular and molecular foundations of urological disease, and moving these discoveries into patient care.

Our research teams are comprised of our own M.D. and Ph.D. faculty as well as close collaborations among several departments and laboratories within the University of Rochester Medical Center. As we gain a greater understanding of the mechanisms of urological diseases and conditions, we are able to develop innovations in therapies and techniques to improve patient care.
