"The Environment-Gene Interface in Urologic Health and Disease"

Program Chair: Rosalyn Adam, PhD, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard University, Boston

Join your colleagues to hear stimulating lectures on cutting-edge research in urologic disease! The 2015 Fall Symposium will focus on the impact of environmental stimuli, both external and internal, and their interaction with genetic factors on urologic disease. Sessions will cross the spectrum of urologic disease research and will touch on all major research areas within our society.

Exciting Plenary Sessions to Include:
  • Nutritional & metabolic aspects of urologic disease
  • Role of inflammation, infection and immunity in urology
  • Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and urologic disease
  • Impact of sex, race and ethnicity on predisposition and manifestation of urologic disease

The Society for Basic Urologic Research (SBUR) is a society of scientists whose expertise includes the study of urologic cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney, testis, penis), the biology of prostate growth, kidney and bladder function, autoimmune urologic diseases, infectious diseases, neuro-urologic diseases, male reproductive biology, infertility and erectile dysfunction.

Members include molecular biologists, immunologists, epidemiologists, oncologists, biochemists and clinical urologic scientists. SBUR members serve on a wide variety of advisory panels, study sections, editorial boards and in the pharmaceutical industry. The SBUR organizes two annual meetings to share new findings at a multidisciplinary level, to promote interaction among members and other interested scientists and to highlight new areas of research and funding opportunities.
The Society was organized to address the following:
  • To provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of basic scientific topics related to urology
  • To develop educational forums concerning scientific advancements related to the field of urology
  • To promote collaborative investigations among member scientists with an emphasis on the interchange of expertise among clinical and basic scientists
  • To promote the communication and interests of urologic disease investigators with national funding agencies, industry representatives and academic institutions with regards to urology related research
  • To serve as a resource for research information and expertise to clinical urologists through the American Urological Association
Each of these functions is currently an active component of SBUR.
