Northern Alberta Urology Foundation

The Northern Alberta Urology Foundation is a not -for-profit registered Charitable Foundation  established in 1986 by the members of the Division of Urology of the University of Alberta, and continued by the members.

Its  purpose is  to  receive donations, grants or other funding to be utilized by members of the Division of Urology, or its designees, to promote and carry on research and education pertaining to urologic diseases.

Charitable donation tax receipts are issued.


All urologic disease entities are of interest. These include - but are not limited to:

              Prostate, bladder, kidney and testis cancer

              Prostatic hypertrophy

              Pediatric urologic diseases

              Erectile dysfunction

              Minimally invasive laparascopic  and robotic surgery

              Urinary stone disease
