Fifty per cent of people will suffer from a urology condition in their lifetime.
Our urology health is vital to our quality of life. But diseases and cancers of the kidneys, bladder, prostate and the male reproductive system are becoming more prevalent and devastating the lives of millions men, women and children in the UK.
The Urology Foundation is committed to transforming the lives of people with a urology condition through ground-breaking research, training and education. The money we raise is invested directly into research to find better treatments and cures, and in educational training for urology professionals to care for and help people affected by urology conditions.
Working with researchers, urology and health care professionals we are improving the nation’s urology care. We are dedicated to beating all urology diseases through cutting-edge research and leading education and training to ensure that fewer lives will be devastated.
- The Urology Foundation was founded in 1995
- TUF has funded over 100 pieces of discrete research since our founding, with total grants in this alone of over £3m
- As a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities, The Urology Foundation follows best practice in peer reviewing research to ensure that only the most promising projects are funded.
- The Urology Foundation has been at the forefront of urological research for two decades now. For example, in the vital field of robotic surgery, over the last few years we have funded dozens of surgeons to study under experts abroad. Having established this skillset within the UK, we are now offering to provide funding to help establish centres which will provide training and education in robotic urological surgery in the UK, meaning future training in this field will not require clinical visits abroad.
