CAIRIBU Annual Meeting


The purpose of the annual CAIRIBU meeting is to bring together the leaders, trainees, and research teams of the NIDDK-funded U54 Urology O’Brien Centers, the FORWARD P20 Centers and P20 Exploratory Centers for Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology, and the Multidisciplinary K12 Urologic Research (KURe) and Urological Epidemiology (KEpi) Institutional Research Career Development Programs.

Collectively, these Centers and Programs are part of the CAIRIBU umbrella – Collaborating for the Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research in Benign Urology. The annual meeting allows for the exchange of scientific knowledge about advances in non-malignant genitourinary research and provides a platform for building interactions across CAIRIBU Centers and Programs and between CAIRIBU investigators and investigators in the broader benign urologic research community. Primary objectives of the meeting include sharing research resources and advancing students and early investigators in their development as future leaders. Interactive networking and interactions sessions and a trainee poster session are primary features of the annual CAIRIBU meeting.
