USRF Mission Statement

Urological Sciences Research Foundation, a California non-profit organization, was started in 1992 by the founder and current medical director, Leonard S. Marks, M.D. The primary mission of the foundation is as follows:

To help advance the understanding of common urologic problems, increase the range of effective treatments for such conditions, and inform the medical and lay public of these problems and treatments.

The Foundation grew out of a busy urological specialty practice with a strong academic bent. Diseases of the prostate are the main focus for research projects of the Foundation. Certain of the projects are sponsored by industry and others are sponsored by the Foundation directly. The Foundation is a self-sustaining, independent operating entity with a full charitable tax exemption (501c3). Funding is derived from donations, research grants, and industry-sponsored contracts. Leadership is provided by a board of directors from the business and professional community.
