Urologic Disease Centers

The Urologic Disease Centers bring together basic science and clinical investigators to enrich research and generate investigative resources that can be made available to the broader research community.  They often have integrated teams of investigators from a wide range of disciplines, share specialized equipment, and serve as regional or national resources.  Centers often support a pilot and feasibility program that funds small grants to generate preliminary data to include in larger grant applications, and many times, offer short-term enrichment activities.
