These ten highly innovative companies span the globe from Israel to Brazil to the United States and will present products—devices, artificial intelligence platforms, diagnostic tests, etc.—covering a variety of urologic issues such as prostate and bladder cancer, kidney injuries, fertility testing, nocturnal enuresis, overactive bladder, and interstitial cystitis. Get more information on the Showcase
  • Reverse Pitch: Join us as leading industry innovators Urovant, Pfizer, Boston Scientific, and Laborie share their passion for research and innovation, what real-world problems they are trying to solve, and engage in a dynamic and interactive discussion on the unanswered questions they are interested in exploring. This unique format gives Industry the opportunity to explain the real-world business challenges they would like to see addressed and the kinds of problems they are interested in collaborating to solve.
  • Discussion Forums: Morning sessions address thought-provoking topics such as the importance of a urology incubator, current physician and patient needs, investment in urologic discovery, and more. View the speaker agenda
  • Networking Opportunities: The networking component is perhaps one of the most essential benefits of the Research Incubator. AUA Innovation Nexus is a powerful forum for building the connections needed to move to the next level of innovation and implementation. Multiple networking opportunities are built into the day, including a reception to close out the program.
We hope you will join us for a full day of sharing expertise, learning, ideation, and networking!
