Summer Research Conference


"Patient Phenotyping: Advancing Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction"
September 13 – 14, 2014

AUA Headquarters
1000 Corporate Boulevard
Linthicum, MD 21090

The goals of the American Urological Association (AUA) Summer Research Conference are to address a timely and important area in urology research and to inspire young basic scientists and urologists by providing opportunities for participation and networking at an outstanding and rigorous scientific program presented by leaders in the field. The purpose of the 2014 Summer Research Conference, "Patient Phenotyping: Advancing Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction" is to identify, develop, and implement strategies aimed toward improving research which will enhance the understanding of lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) in both younger and older adults. This conference is also intended to complement and synergize with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)’s Measurement of Urinary Symptoms (MOMUS) and Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Research Network (LURN) initiatives.

The Summer Research Conference includes poster exhibits, networking opportunities, and a funding workshop with roundtable discussions where researchers can get the last funding information and talk directly with training officers from the National Institutes of Health. This meeting is intended for individuals at all levels of their research and/or clinical careers.

There is a $100 registration fee for early career investigators (within 10 years of residency or doctorate) and $250 registration fee for senior investigators and others. To register, contact the AUA Customer Service Department at 1-800-908-9414 or e-mail
