The Division of Urology is a unit that contributes significantly to the annual publication targets and output of the Department of Surgery. Members of the team are active in various research activities which include studies that involve biomarker development, cancer research, database/registry management, collaborative work with multiple departments and organisations in all aspects of urology. Apart from this, there are also ongoing clinical research and trials being conducted with multiple industrial partners, and with our surgeons and urologist in training. Generous support from successful applications of both internal and external research grants have been forthcoming to fund
all our research activities.
