American seniors spend over $4 billion each year on prostate-related urinary disorders such as increased urge to urinate, painful urination, excessive urination during the day or at night, and incontinence. Prostate cancer contributes to these problems and is a leading cause of death in American men. Aging male dogs also suffer from prostate-related diseases. We are deeply committed to improving male health by developing new treatments for prostate-related urinary dysfunction and cancer in human men and male dogs. We are also committed to developing Wisconsin’s next generation of outstanding scientists who will continue to address prostate-related diseases long into the future.
We are proud team members of the UW-Madison/UMASS Boston/UT Southwestern George M. O’Brien Benign Urology Research Center, the GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project (GUDMAP), and are Collaborating for the Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology.
