Women's Urology

The Women’s Urology program supports basic, translational, and clinical studies related to the normal and abnormal function of the lower urinary tract.  Research studies are conducted with both children and adults on the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of such clinical disorders as urinary incontinence, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, and urinary tract infections, including acute and chronic cystitis.  The program maintains an active outreach component for health care providers, patients, and the public.  The goal is to raise awareness about advances in the treatment and prevention of noncancerous urologic disorders in women to improve the quality of life for individuals with these conditions.
