Division of Urology
The Division of Urology is home to research programs investigating mechanisms of disease, translating discoveries in the laboratory to clinical trials, and making experimental treatments available to patients with complex and challenging conditions.
Basic research within the department is augmented by research collaborations with investigators and faculty from a wide range of scientific disciplines from Brown Alpert Medical School and Rhode Island Hospital.
