Dr Kotula explains how basic science research in his lab at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY will benefit prostate cancer patients with better diagnostic and treatment options.

Research

The Department of Urology attracts some of the finest researchers with NIH grants. More significant than national stature are the department’s long range contributions to the field of urology.

Urology research is growing exponentially at Upstate. As the community's need for urology related services grows, so does the need for urologic research. Why spend today's limited resources on tomorrow's problems? It's a question often posed to academic medical centers like Upstate.

Through research, we create new knowledge. We develop more-targeted, more-efficient, more-effective treatments. We figure out how to make better use of our limited resources.
