2019 Departmental Highlights

Joshua Stern, MD, Director of Endourology and the Kidney Stone Clinic, received a $125,000 grant from the National Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center, which is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The grant will help to fund his study on the “Development of a humanized mouse model to study the association between the gut microbiome and urinary stone disease.”


Evan Kovac, MD, in partnership with other departments at Montefiore and our Albert Einstein College of Medicine, recently published a prostate cancer epidemiologic study in the journal, Clinical Genitourinary Cancer. The study found that men of different racial groups who presented to a large urban academic medical center had statistically different differences in newly diagnosed prostate cancer characteristics.
