Movement Disorders Research Team

The Urology Research Team at NBT is a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, academics and members of the public working across both functional urology and oncology.

Our research is supported by the Department of Health and the Bristol Urological Institute. We conduct research across a variety of settings, including laboratory based work and clinical work.

We work on a range of commercial and non-commercial, qualitative and quantitative research and collaborate with colleagues locally, nationally and internationally in order to improve outcomes for patients suffering from various urological conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Cancers such as prostate, bladder, kidney, penile and testicular
  • Male and female incontinence
  • Kidney disease including stone problems
  • Uretic disease
  • Benign prostate disease

We have close links with the University of Bristol and University of the West of England (UWE). We also work with patient groups such as Prospect.
