Cedars-Sinai Experts to Present Latest Research on Urological Care

Prostate Cancer in Transgender Women, Variations in Age of Bladder Cancer, Robotic Surgery, and Female Pelvic Medicine Among Cedars-Sinai Studies Being Presented

Experts from the Department of Urology at Cedars-Sinai will present innovative research findings and lead discussions on the latest medical breakthroughs during the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting April 28-May 1 in Chicago.

Urological experts will participate in late-breaking presentations, video discussions and poster sessions during the conference.

“The AUA scientific meeting is the largest gathering of urologists in the world and the premier venue for sharing research findings and educating urologists,” said Hyung Kim, MD, chair of the Department of Urology. “I’m proud that our highly renowned clinicians and researchers are invited again this year to explore, learn and share all the latest advancements in urologic medicine.”

Over 20 poster presentations of studies led or co-authored by Cedars-Sinai investigators that cover a wide range of research in the field of urology will be showcased at the annual meeting, including prostate cancer in transgender women, renal cell carcinoma in Hispanic and non-Hispanic patients, variations in age of bladder cancer, robotic surgery, and female pelvic medicine and urogenital reconstruction

In addition to research highlighted at the conference, Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD, director of Cedars-Sinai Cancer and the PHASE ONE Distinguished Chair, will be honored with an AUA Presidential Citation award, presented to individuals deemed to have significantly promoted the cause of urology, for elucidating the molecular underpinnings of urothelial bladder cancer.

Below is information on notable conference podium and poster presentations by Cedars-Sinai specialists in urological medicine.
