• The 26th Meeting of the EAU Section of Urological Research (ESUR)

ESUR19 Porto

26th Meeting of the EAU Section of Urological Research in collaboration with the Society for Basic Urologic Research and the EAU Section of Uropathology.


A great opportunity for researchers to meet and share results and expertise in all fields of urological research.

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are very pleased to extend an invitation to join the 26th Meeting of the EAU Section of Urological Research in Porto, Portugal. Emphasising once more the interdisciplinary character of ESUR, the meeting is organised in collaboration with the EAU Section of Uropathology. Furthermore, we are delighted that the Society for Basic Urologic Research (SBUR) will be our scientific partner this year following a long tradition of collaboration.

Outstanding international experts will deliver lectures on exciting latest results from the investigation of urological diseases. In this meeting, we will tackle important urological research topics like translational neurourology, microenvironment and metabolism. An important issue this year is epigenetic reprogramming and epidrugs: from basics to clinical trials as well as epitranscriptomics as another class of gene expression regulators. Molecular subtypes and therapeutics including immunooncology in urological tumors as well as data protection, regulation & ethics will be addressed. For the second time, a point-counterpoint session is also scheduled to tackle topics of debate from both clinical and research points of view. As usual, oral presentations by young investigators on selected abstracts and extensive poster sessions over coffee are planned to maximize interaction, dissemination, and especially for young investigators and urologists, provide opportunities to meet potential future mentors.

The meeting will be held in the Portuguese Oncology Institute of Porto (IPO Porto), the largest specialised Portuguese cancer institution with a triple role: (1) patient care, (2) research, and (3) education in Oncology, accredited by OECI (the European Organization of Cancer Institutes) as a Comprehensive Cancer Center.

We look forward to seeing you at this premier urological event.
