Our Research

The faculty at Houston Methodist actively participate in all phases of research, from proof of concept and translational research to clinical research (clinical trials, health sciences research and outcomes research.) Our team is also proud to have six of our members serving on scientific peer-reviewed journal editorial boards.


Our team is pioneering studies in cell regeneration and translational imaging to restore bladder function in patients with urologic conditions following an injury or surgery for urologic cancers. In both translational and clinical studies, our experts are expanding the understanding of urologic conditions and disorders ― such as prostate cancer, bladder disease and urinary incontinence — to deliver new technologies and treatments to patients faster.


We are also making strides in women’s urology — focusing on wellness, cancer detection, treatment and prevention of recurrent infections, incontinence, prolapse and sexual wellness — as well as advanced imaging with micro-ultrasound.
