2014 SUMMER RESEARCH CONFERENCE
"Patient Phenotyping: Advancing Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction"
September 13 – 14, 2014
The 21st Summer Research Conference was held on September 13-14 at the AUA Headquarters in Linthicum, MD. The program chairs were Toby Chai, MD; J. Quentin Clemens, MD; and Michel Pontari, MD.
The topic of the meeting was "Patient Phenotyping: Advancing Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction." The information shared during this meeting is expected to assist in advancing the goals of the Measurement of Urinary Symptoms (MOMUS) and the Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Research Network (LURN) in terms of catalyzing progress in understanding the etiology and natural history of LUTD and development of comprehensive symptom assessment tools through patient phenotyping. The rigorous and in-depth discussion attracted leaders in the field, leading urology researchers, clinical urologists and junior investigators. The meeting included scientific presentations and posters. This may also lead to new opportunities for collaborations between basic and clinical participants and eventually lead to the translation of laboratory bench findings into clinical settings and vice versa.
