Strategic Objective
We aim to consolidate a strong research group into:
• Urologic Oncology
• Reconstructive surgery
• Endurologic and minimally invasive surgery
• Lithiasis
• Incontinence / Neuro-urology
• Andrology / Reproduction
Through basic and experimental research, clinical research, translational research and clinical trials.
The results of this projects should be translated into doctoral theses, publications in high impact journals and visibility factor, as to finally achieve patents and trademarks.
Research Lines
 • Urological Oncology
    The group’s efforts will focus on the following fields of research:
BLADDER CANCER
- Immunological response in patients with bladder cancer treated with BCG.
- Urinary markers in diagnosis and prediction of response in patients with bladder cancer.
- New immunomodulatory treatments in bladder cancer.
- New imaging methods for the diagnosis of bladder cancer.
- Efficacy of combined chemo and immunotherapy hyperthermia in bladder cancer.
PROSTATE CANCER
- Castration-resistant prostate carcinoma, immune response, and evaluation of predictive     markers of therapeutic response.
- Medical treatment of locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer.
- Development of new surgical minimally invasive techniques for localized prostate cancer.
KIDNEY CANCER
- Development of new surgical minimally invasive techniques for localized kidney cancer.
- Research of new therapeutic lines in hereditary renal cancer.
- Medical treatment of locally advanced and metastatic renal carcinoma.
• Reconstructive surgery
- Development and improvement of new reconstructive surgery techniques for complex urethral        strictures, genitourinary congenital malformations and genitourinary fistulas.
- Development of a Regenerative Medicine Unit and Tissue Bioengineering applied to reconstructive    urologic surgery.
• Endurologic and minimally invasive surgery
- Development of new endourological surgery techniques for minimally invasive treatment of benign
  prostatic hyperplasia and urinary lithiasis.
- Development of a learning program in laparoscopy and other minimally invasive surgeries.
• Lithiasis
- Study of new inhibitors of crystallization of urine solutes as prevention of lithogenesis.
- Metabolic study of renal lithiasis.
• Incontinence and Neuro-urology
- Study and treatment of chronic pelvic pain.
- Development and improvement of new systems for the treatment of urinary incontinence.
• Andrology / Reproduction
- Study of new medical and surgical treatments for male infertility.
- Development of new medical and surgical treatments for erectile dysfunction.
