Our Research

The underlying tenet of the JBU is that in order to understand urothelial carcinogenesis and cancer, it is essential to understand the process of homeostasis and how cells in the normal tissue are controlled. Our approach has been to establish in vitro cell and tissue systems for human urothelial cells. In addition to using these systems to study cancer, we are also using them to study other diseases of the bladder and their use in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
