Vanderbilt University Medical Center: For Employees, Researchers, and Students

Welcome

Millions of American men and women over the age of 50 suffer from a range of prostate and bladder ailments often referred to as enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), and changes in bladder compliance or lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

Mission
Bring together experts from diverse, yet related, medical fields to further understand the relationship between BPH/LUTS and other associated co-morbidities. This study will lay the groundwork for further research that can lead to appropriate treatment options for the broader disease syndrome.

Program Goals

  • Help create an environment that supports important and innovative research
  • Raise awareness and interest in BPH/LUTS and its relationship to other significant co-morbidities
  • Enhance benign urologic research education for students, scientists and clinicians
  • Foster interdisciplinary collaborations, especially in emerging areas of research, to catalyze new ideas and scientific approaches.
