Clinical Research….. by Clinicians.

Now there’s an idea.

The West Australian Urologic Research Organisation (WAURO) is a not-for-profit research group with a difference. What’s unusual about us is that the majority of our board of directors are practising urologists – surgeons who regularly operate on the urinary tract, including treating cancer of the prostate, bladder, kidneys, testes and penis. Being involved in clinical practice – meeting, treating and caring for patients each and every day – means we’re ideally placed to collect and share important data, adapt existing methodology and help to develop brand new treatments to improve the care and outcome for patients suffering from all types of urological disease (both malignant and non-malignant). Also among our board members is one of WA’s leading surgical pathologists. So,as well as being close to patients, we also have the expertise and facilities to conduct laboratory-based research into new treatments and treatment protocols. WAURO is committed to supporting West Australian research in all areas of urological science – and to ensuring that substantive findings are progressed quickly into clinical practice to benefit patients across our State and beyond.
