Research Funding and Initiative Updates from AUA Office of Research
Expansion of Online Resources for the Urologic Research Community
We've recently redesigned our website (www.AUAnet.org/Research) to host a more robust set of resources for the urologic research community, including current funding opportunities, research symposia and workshops, biorepositories, and research training/career opportunities. As such, we hope to take a more collaborative approach in generating this content by inviting research organizations to share any relevant opportunities or initiatives they would like to publicize. Our goal is to better provide the community with useful and impactful resources for a successful research career. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
2019 Research Scholar Award Competition Now Open
Research Scholar Awards provide $40,000 per year for one- or two-year mentored research training for clinical and postdoctoral fellows or early-career faculty. Sponsoring institutions provide additional financial support, an outstanding research environment and access to excellent mentorship.

Physician Scientist Residency Training Award – Now Accepting Applications Medical students in their senior year and recent medical school graduates with a passion for urology and research are invited to apply for the new Physician Scientist Residency Training Award. This award supports an intensive, three-year research training program embedded within urology residency at an eligible program site. The trainee will receive $75,000 per year during the three-year research period, focused didactic research courses, and exceptional mentorship. The successful candidate will begin residency in July 2019. A letter of intent is required and is due by 5:00PM EDT on August 16, 2018.
The Research Grant program assists investigators, new or established, who have research projects for which they need support. While the OHF primarily seeks to fund grants which will increase the understanding of Primary Hyperoxaluria and oxalosis and improve the clinical management and treatment of the genetic diseases, applications focused on hyperoxaluria and oxalosis associated with other conditions and diseases will also be considered.
Support: Applications for up to two years of support will be considered. These funds may be used in the following categories: Personnel, Supplies, Other Costs, Travel, and Equipment. Indirect costs up to 10% of the direct costs (excluding equipment) may be requested.
