Of the other research activities conducted at the center, stem cell differentiation with cells related to the urinary tract and also their utilization in the treatment of some inefficiency through cell therapy, as well as the same patient’s cells in cell therapy may be noted.  Among the other researches performed at the center, those related to the role of different bio-markers which clarify urinary tract cancers may be noteworthy. 

Following the successful initiation of the national researches performed at UNRC in the epidemiology of urinary tract stones, and determining the cancer-causing risk factors in the cancers of bladder, and the related proposals in the field, important results have been achieved which have been published in some ISI scientific journals.

Following performing all the above activities, It was decided to establish “the Research Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Urinary Tract Stones” for the first time in the country and the Middle East. The center was officially opened in 2011, which is benefiting from the collaboration of the academic staff including urologists and nutritionists.   

Bearing in mind the importance of evidence-based medicine, there was a need to generate scientific guidelines in 2009 by holding meetings from the Uro-Oncology Committee including urologists, nephrologists, radiotherapists, oncologists, radiologists, and pathologists from different universities around the country. The team began to generate national clinical guidelines for the urinary tract cancers. The guidelines were forwarded to all of the urology departments around the nation, and their comments were considered, resulting in the center being officially accepted by the Ministry of Health as the KMU center; so the guidelines about the cancers of the bladder, prostate, testes, and kidney were all approved by the Office of Deputy-Minister in Treatment at the Ministry of Health, Treatment, and Medical Education.       

The SBMU UNRC is ready to render its services in coordination with other health and treatment centers.

We are ready to collaborate warmly with all specialists, physicians, and students in research.

We hope to make a further step in promoting our country’s scientific level.
