The Division of Urology lead by Professor Vincent J Gnanapragasam, is part of the Department of Surgery. The division has an outstanding record of publications both in basic science and translational research. A strong theme of the division is close integration of research into clinical practice with the aim of improving early disease detection, personalised medicine approaches and optimising primary therapy outcomes for patients.
The overarching ethos is to develop and progress research that is based on close collaborative multi-disciplinary working with colleagues in radiology, pathology, basic sciences, oncology, epidemiology and STEM sciences.
The division works very closely with clinical colleagues in the Department of Urology which is renowned for its world class clinical urological service.
