Advancing Basic and Translational Research for Genitourinary Conditions

There are enormous knowledge gaps in our understanding of function and dysfunction of the lower urinary tract. To fill these gaps, we are pioneering a virtual workshop series comprised of 7 weekly sessions. These sessions will convene a multi-perspective brain trust, including basic, translational, and clinical researchers at all stages of their careers, health professionals, patients and industry representatives. Our topic is Female Urethral Function and Failure. Workshop participants will share knowledge, ask questions and engage in real time and asynchronous discussions regarding urethral function and failure to iteratively generate a systems model that will demonstrate what is known about the urethra’s role in continence and identify gaps in our knowledge that impede progress towards better treatments. The generation of a systems model incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives will facilitate development of meaningful research questions that can lead to novel, impactful grant applications with the goal of improving women’s health.

Registration website will be available soon.
