Best treatment for high-risk, localised prostate cancer
Focal therapy: safety, patient selection & "best" technology
Renal cancer (RCC) Individualised, multi-modal treatment
Renal-preserving interventions
UK-wide tissue bank
Bladder cancer (TCC) Identification of high-risk, superficial TCC requiring cystectomy
Alternatives to "check cystoscopy"
Evidence synthesis High-quality, systematic review & meta-analysis
Robotics Imaging guidance
Training for the "new" surgery: simulation
LUTS Urodynamics for male bladder outflow obstruction
