Science is at the foundation of our work. And is the reason we fund the brightest minds and the best urology research - research that leads to better treatments and improved quality of life.
We realize advancements in urologic care and disease would not exist without research. This is why we fund all stages of the process, starting from understanding the basic biology of a disease to developing new treatment and prevention methods .
Our aim is to bring the science to life and improve lives. Research is a long and costly process; one that can take 15 years and more than $2.5 billion to develop a treatment ready for patient use. And while the time and money invested seems sizeable, we recognize the outcomes are remarkable.
