Basic and Translational Research

Basic and Translational Research

In order to advance our understanding of the pathophysiology of urological deseases we need to bridge the gap between basic scientists and clinicians.

We are looking for basic scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, bioinformatics, surgeon-scientists, and urologists to collaborate to improve translational science in the art of endourology.
