2019 Research Advances for UCPPS: Informing the Next Generation of Clinical Studies
The 2019 Research Advances for UCPPS: Informing the Next Generation of Clinical Studies meeting has been postponed and registrations have been closed until further notice. A rescheduled date has not been set yet. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back soon for more details.
Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (UCPPS) represents both Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) and Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS). The Research Advances for Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome: Informing the Next Generation of Clinical Studies meeting will provide a forum for exchange of seminal insights into UCPPS underlying mechanisms and clinical characteristics. The meeting will highlight findings from the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network and other investigators working in the UCPPS field, as well as work in other areas that may inform these efforts. Junior faculty conducting UCPPS research, as well as those new to UCPPS are encouraged to attend. Major themes will include identification of new treatment targets and therapies based on underlying mechanisms, patient sub-grouping strategies, new disease definitions and optimal outcome measures, and novel clinical trial designs. A central goal of the meeting is to support the translation of new insights into recommendations for developing future evidence-based clinical studies/trials for UCPPS and ultimately to improve patient care.
