We investigate clinical, epidemiological, pathological, molecular and genetic characteristics of urological diseases. Our goal is to improve urological healthcare, from the general practitioner to tertiary academic care.
The Department of Urology of the Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, is embedded in the dynamic, internationally competitive research community of several clinical, translational and basic research groups. Our focus lies in Protate Cancer, Urothelial Cancer, Functional Urology, Andrology and Pediatric Urology. We have longstandig collaborations with multiple other acadamic centers, both internationally and at a national level, and host fruitful relationships with our industry partners. Our department is renowed for participation at the highest level to improve European Patient Guidelines.
Our motto: “research” = care. We aim to improve the diagnosis, treatment and outcome in patients with urologic diseases by translational, clinical and epidemiological research, and education of students and professionals. Providing excellent academic care at a tertiary level is in our DNA. Do you want to be part of our team, either as as aspiring researcher or student, don’t hesitate to send your contact information to one of our Principal Investigators.
The Department of Urology is placed in the Staff Tower (Na buidling), the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute (Be building) and in the research tower (Ee building). The Department Chair is Dr. Joost L. Boormans.
