PASTUSZAK AWARDED RISING STARS IN UROLOGY RESEARCH AWARD

Pastuszak Alexander

Alexander W. Pastuszak, MD, PhD, was recently awarded an AUA Rising Stars in Urology Research Award for his project titled “Characterization of the Role of NELL 1 in the Predisposition to Fibrosis in Peyronie’s and Dupuytren’s Diseases.” Astellas Pharma, US, Inc. is the sponsor.

Dr. Pastuszak is an assistant professor in the Department of Urology at the University of Utah.

Dr. Pastuszak’s work is expected to improve individualized and more effective treatments for patients suffering from Peyronie’s and Dupuytren’s diseases. There is currently no cure for these heritable, superficial fibrosing diseases and treatments are only incompletely effective. Dr. Pastuszak will define the role of a gene called NELL1 in order to provide mechanistic insights into the development of these diseases. By better understanding their genetic underpinnings, Dr. Pastuszak will improve patient risk stratification leading to better patient care.
