Urology Bioengineering, Biotechnology, & Imaging
The development of new technologies for the diagnosis, monitoring, or treatment of noncancerous urologic disease
The Urology Bioengineering, Biotechnology, and Imaging program supports research and development of new technologies for the bioengineering of urologic tissues, and the diagnosis, monitoring, or treatment of noncancerous urologic diseases and conditions. Research includes new methods to noninvasively assess urologic function and dysfunction. The program advances studies on urologic tissue assessment, device development and imaging for benign urologic diseases. The portfolio also includes work under the Small Business program, which encourages collaboration between academic investigators and small businesses.

NIDDK makes publicly supported resources, data sets, and studies available to researchers to accelerate the rate and lower the cost of new discoveries.
- Ancillary Studies to Major Ongoing Clinical Studies to extend our knowledge of the diseases being studied by the parent study investigators under a defined protocol or to study diseases and conditions not within the original scope of the parent study but within the mission of the NIDDK.
- NIDDK Central Repository for access to clinical resources including data and biospecimens from NIDDK-funded studies.
- NIDDK Information Network (dkNET) for simultaneous search of digital resources, including multiple datasets and biomedical resources relevant to the mission of the NIDDK.
