Our purpose is to contribute significantly to diagnosis, prevention and treatment of urologic diseases including, but not limited to, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney transplantation, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) , and pelvic medicine and reconstruction.
Our goal is to increase basic research, population-based research and rapidly translate the findings into clinical trials and community applications. Basic scientific research is conducted in research labs based in clinical departments, through the Clark Urological Center, the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration Medical Center, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, and Olive View Medical Center.
The UCLA Department of Urology is an integrated research community where collaboration and interaction are fostered and prized. Scientists at the various research centers collaborate extensively with their clinical colleagues to find scientific solutions to specific urological problems.
