Research lab

Although not life-threatening, many non-cancerous urological disorders can severely compromise quality of life. UCSF researchers are investigating the causes and best treatments for conditions such as erectile dysfunction, incontinence, urinary stones, and kidney and genital trauma. Their work encompasses basic laboratory investigations and clinical trials of new drugs and devices. Researchers also evaluate the merits of different surgical approaches to treating these conditions.
