Our goals are to determine the molecular and cellular mechanisms of BPH development and progression while attracting new investigators to the field of BPH.
Our Cores provide administrative support and research resources to center members and other investigators in benign urology to increase synergy and efficiency.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to identify new targets for developing novel preventative & therapeutic treatment approaches for BPH. The Center investigators have expertise in an array of fields, including urology, endocrinology, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology, neuroscience, genetics and pathology. Using their various expertise, investigators developed multidisciplinary projects that contain basic mechanistic components as well as the use of human clinical specimens to study BPH/LUTS.
