NIDDK to sponsor urology symposium
The UW Department of Urology will host a two-day symposium sponsored by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) as part of a P20 award. “Solving the Puzzle of Complex Disorders with Patient Specimens, Animal Models and Biomarker Discovery” will occur June 30 and July 1 in room 2002 of Rennebohm Hall in the School of Pharmacy on the UW-Madison campus. Speakers from around the country will present on topics pertaining to lower urinary tract symptoms, prostate disease and other genitourinary diseases. The scope of the conference and the presentations will be broad-based and encompass a variety of complex symptomatic disorders, pain, cancer, biomarker discovery, systems biology, and mass spectrometry-based proteomics and metabolomics.
Lectures will be held in the mornings and poster sessions will take place throughout the afternoons. Lunches will be provided. No registration is necessary to attend the symposium.
Attendees are encouraged to register their posters for the event. The symposium welcomes all presenters who are interested in learning more about urologic disease or how to apply urinary metabolomics and proteomic phenotyping to solve complex disease problems.
