Research centers and labs at the Brady Urological Institute are pushing the boundaries of science and continuing our legacy of innovation. Researchers at the Brady Urological Institute continue to transform how urologic conditions like prostate and bladder cancers are detected and treated. Meet our investigators, whose discoveries give hope to patients around the world.
Bladder Cancer Research Center
The Bladder Cancer Research Center is investigating all areas of this disease — from screening and detection to symptom management and survivorship care. Surgical, medical and radiation oncology experts at Johns Hopkins work together as a team to coordinate care for bladder cancer patients. They continue ground-breaking research and clinical trials to improve detection and treatment.
The Kenneth J. Pienta laboratory has championed the concept that cancer tumorigenesis and metastasis can best be understood utilizing the principles of Ecology. As a result, the Pienta laboratory is working to develop new treatments for cancer utilizing network disruption.
URobotics is a research and education program that uses advanced technology to improve how urological diseases are diagnosed and treated. The URobotics lab’s main focus is creating robots that aid in real-time, image-guided interventions. This multidisciplinary team of urologists, radiologists and engineers has teamed up to revolutionize how surgeries are performed.
