Discovering the role of androgens in urethral homeostasis and regeneration

Matthias D. Hofer, Allen F. Morey

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter we describe our journey discovering the role of androgens and specifically testosterone on urethral regeneration and homeostasis. This translational research project has so far spanned almost a decade and included clinical research, tissue-based research, and animal experiments, both for hypothesis generation and validation as well as developing treatment strategies that we are currently using clinically in our patients.
