KEY FOCUS AREA - UROGENITAL SYSTEM  

The urogenital system key focus area is basically structured by professors from the urogenital system research unit, UERJ (www.urogenitalresearch.org) who are dedicated to increasing knowledge in the urogenital system from a basic and applied clinical perspective. The research is made on several models, including clinical research and experiments on laboratory animals, with a wide variety of methodologies. Professors of the urogenital research unit, in addition to their research activities, are also involved in undergraduate and graduate teaching for medicine and other programs in the biomedical area. The unit has its own laboratories, specialized in anatomical surgical techniques, experimental surgery, extracellular matrix biochemistry, histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, molecular biology, etc. In addition, the unit has strong collaboration with other departments of UERJ, from Rio de Janeiro, other states, and other countries. The main characteristic of the urogenital unit is the strong integration and collaboration between experimental research work carried out in the unit's laboratories and clinical practice, which provides a stimulating and productive environment. Exceptional opportunities are also created for training undergraduate and graduate students, who can take advantage of both the experience of the unit's staff and the wide diversity of scientific activities.
