Research and Innovation
One of the primary goals of the VUMC Department of Urology is to 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. We do this through cutting edge science and state-of-the-art technologies, read more about our history of innovation here.
The Department of Urology is a nationally recognized leader in urologic research. 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. Our research programs and faculty regularly receive grant funding through government programs (e.g. the National Institutes of Health), other public and private entities, and healthcare industry. Our research teams partner with other innovative leaders at VUMC and across the country to lead national and international, multi-center studies and clinical trials.
