Join us on Friday, September 16, at 2:00pm UTC. To see what time this is for you, click here.

On September 16, you are invited to participate in the IUGA Basic Science SIG consensus conference to identify ways that we can support the development of the next generation of basic science researchers within the field of female pelvic medicine. During this half-day program, we will brainstorm and explore ways to ensure that future generations of scientists and clinician-scientists have the knowledge to apply state-of-the-art modern experimental tools to the mechanistic studies in the field. Through expert lectures, breakout sessions, and group discussions, we will identify gaps in knowledge and training and use this information to support the creation of sustainable educational programs and mentorships for trainees and junior faculty. The integration of basic science knowledge and clinical findings will lead to novel strategies for treatment of pelvic floor and lower urinary tract dysfunction, ultimately improving lives of urogynecology patients worldwide.
