Research Programmes

Research, both scientific and clinical, is critical for better diagnosis and treatment of urological diseases. The Foundation offers a number of research awards to urology professionals, non-clinical scientists and those working in the field of urology.

We firmly believe that research is key to beating urological diseases.

We are open to considering research ideas at any time and, if applicable, will advise which funding streams they may best suit. However, funding may not always be available. 

We are an NIHR Partner. Find out how that can help you fund your research.
