Collaborating for the Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology

Developing science to reduce the burden of benign urologic diseases

CAIRIBU is a community of researchers studying benign urology diseases at U54 O’Brien Cooperative Research Centers, P20 Exploratory Centers, FORWARD P20 Centers, and K12 Career Development Programs funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), one of the institutes within the National Institutes of Health (NIH). CAIRIBU Centers and Programs are united around the overall objectives of improving our understanding of the mechanisms of urogenital diseases and developing clinical therapies for treating them by building collaborative and interactive research platforms that span the gamut from basic to translational to population research.
