The Robert C. Eyre Research Fund
“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 research 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.
