Residents in the Simulation Lab


The University of Rochester is at the forefront of urologic research. Our faculty and residents use a broad investigative approach utilizing both basic and clinical research techniques. The urology research faculty supports numerous peer reviewed extramurally funded research projects with state of the art technology and facilities to study a wide range of basic, translational and clinical research problems.

Areas of focus:

Clinical Science

  • Clinical trials evaluating treatments for cancer through the Wilmot Cancer Center
  • Databases encompassing prostatectomy, HoLEP, and urolithiasis outcomes research
  • Tissue bank with benign and malignant specimens
  • Advances in Telemedicine

Education Research

  • Simulation Center studies of trainee education, use of models, and surgical practice

Basic Science

  • The role of the androgen receptor in urologic cancers
  • Extracellular vesicles in bladder pathology
  • Iron metabolism within the testis
