Our faculty actively conducts a full spectrum of basic science, clinical and translational research to improve patient health and develop a more personalized approach to care. We discover and innovate new ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage urologic conditions. This leads to more successful patient outcomes and more cost-effective care. Read more about our history of innovation.
We design and lead – and provide our patients with access to – numerous clinical trials. Our research programs and faculty receive funding from the National Institutes of Health, public and private entities, and industry-sponsored endeavors. This creates a dynamic research environment that readily applies research findings.
In many cases, the Department of Urology leads national and international, multi-center studies and trials directed by Vanderbilt faculty and researchers.
