American Urological Association

Organization Overview

The American Urological Association (AUA) working with its Urology Care Foundation—the official Foundation of the AUA— is committed to supporting urologic research through education, advocacy and funding. The AUA’s research mission is to increase and maintain the urology physician-scientists and researcher workforce to catalyze the advancement of clinical practice and reduce the burden of urologic disease. The AUA hosts nearly a dozen vital and dynamic research symposia, workshops and resources to support the urology research community, and is actively engaged as a champion for urologic research funding at the federal level. The AUA and its Foundation offer a portfolio of mentored research training awards to fund innovative research across the spectrum of urologic disease and foster the development of emerging leaders in urologic research.
