Congratulations Dr. Sivaraman for being awarded the 2016-2017 Research Scholar under the IAUA/Sakti Das, MD Research Scholar Endowment Fund. Project Title: "Functional outcomes and thermal exposure of the vital structures during MR-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound ablation of prostate cancer" Learn more about Dr. Sivaraman's project.

In May 2014, the IAUA Board unanimously agreed to, in conjunction with the AUA and Urology Care Foundation, establish the IAUA/Sakti Das, MD Research Scholar Endowment Fund. IAUA leaders both past and present agreed to personally contribute and raise funds to support the endowment, and the IAUA membership agreed to provide an IAUA matching grant to complete the $250,000 required for the endowment program.

The total $1.5 million endowment for each fund will generate income to support an annual grant for the scholar enhanced by an institutional match of that same annual amount.
