Workshop Description

The Diabetes and Diabetic Uropathy Symposium will be held on October 8–9, 2017 at AUA Headquarters in Linthicum, MD. The two day meeting will enable participants to forge new interdisciplinary synergies and collaborations across diabetes research with a focus on uropathic consequences. Basic science, translational and clinical researchers interested in diabetes in general, and those who focus on diabetes-associated lower urinary tract dysfunction are encouraged to attend. Basic and translational science topics cover diabetic animal models and diabetes-related lower urinary tract research. Clinical sessions include general aspects of diabetes as a disease and the effect of diabetes on lower urinary tract and other systems. CME Credits will be available. Travel awards are available for early-career investigators. See below for more information.
