Charitable contributions have provided the financial foundation of the Brady Institute’s mission, vision and impact on urologic treatment and research since “Diamond Jim” Brady, a urology patient at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, donated more than $600,000 to establish what is now known as The James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute. In today’s dollars, Mr. Brady’s gifts to Johns Hopkins would total almost $16,000,000. This groundbreaking institute, the first of its kind in North America, placed patient care, laboratory research and teaching under one roof. It began a tradition of discovery that continues today.
The Brady Urological Institute, located in Baltimore, Md., treats a national and international patient base and is considered the preeminent center for urologic research in the world. Our international reputation is rooted in our people: bright, innovative surgeons, scientists and staff who love what they do. They thrive in our one-of-a-kind environment in which scientists and surgeons make our patients a priority.
Philanthropy provides our faculty with the resources needed to further their research and improve their clinical practice. With your support, future discoveries push the limits of current knowledge and expand the boundaries of our ability to treat and cure. Thank you for being part of our program.
