Our researchers are leaders in the prevention, early detection and cure of urologic disease and have published numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers in their areas of expertise. We have an exceptional research team with expertise in study coordination, data analysis, management of large databases, IRB experience and grant applications.

Previous Student Perspective

Austin Martin portraitAustin Martin

Hometown: Alexandria, VA

Undergraduate Degree: United States Military Academy

Why Urology: Urology combines my interest in surgery with my interest in building long term relationships with my patients. A significant portion of urology is also oncology, providing me the opportunity to pursue my research interests in immunology, immuno-oncology, and systems biology. 

Best memory from KU Urology Sub-I: Throwing horizontal mattress sutures across a 16cm complex wound closure. KU Urology provides great hands-on opportunities for med students.
