A nice blend of solid research and light-hearted commentary gives this site an enjoyable tone. The medical director of the Urological Sciences Research Foundation authors most of the scientific abstracts; other scientific material can be accessed through links to other sites. The site, which includes a search engine, also connects viewers to articles on urology that appear in the general press. The site has a Research in Progress section. The Urolink of the Month feature highlights new Web sites pertinent to urologists.
