"The Robert C. Eyre Research Fund" has
been established to support Dr.
Robert Eyre's research projects.
Recognized as a leading urologic surgeon
and scholar, Dr. Eyre has a long standing interest in deepening the knowledge
base about the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the genitourinary
tract, such as infections (prostatitis, epididymitis, bladder and kidney infections)
and cancer (prostate, testicular, kidney, bladder).
Funds donated to Dr. Eyre's
fund support the innovative pilot projects required to seek additional funding
from sources such as the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Eyre and his
research colleagues have a proven track record in expanding innovative pilot
into large, longer term research as well as new modes of clinical practice.
Some of the pilot projects currently underway
and in need of support are designed to understand the causes of chronic prostatitis,
and to develop earlier detection methods for prostate cancer. They are described here.
