Welcome!

Thank you for visiting! This site is intended to provide information for families, physicians, genetic counselors, and researchers who are interested in learning more about our research on the genetics of Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (UCPPS).

The fundamental goals of our Genetic Studies in UCPPS are to understand the molecular genetics and pathophysiology of urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome (UCPPS), and to use this information to develop improved diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

Our research team is part of the Harvard Program in Urology. We are located in the Enders Research Building of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School at 320 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115. This study is Harvard Program in Urology multidisciplinary project and is based at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Our Research

Previous studies have shown that interstitial cystitis/ painful bladder syndrome/ chronic pelvic pain syndrome (IC/PBS/CPPS), currently termed Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (UCPPS) may be inherited from one generation to the next. Our research project, Genetics of Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (UCPPS) is trying to identify the genetic causes of UCPPS. We hope the information gained from our research will lead to better diagnosis and treatments for people with UCPPS. For more information on this study, please click here.
