Changes in study NIH sections: UKGD is becoming UGPP. The NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) has announced that beginning in October 2011, the new Urologic and Genitourinary Physiology and Pathology (UGPP) study section will replace the Urologic and Kidney Development and Genitourinary Diseases (UKGD) study section. The new study section will review applications concerning physiological and pathophysiological processes of the lower urinary tract, male reproductive organs, female pelvic floor, urolithiasis, and microbial infection and inflammation in the lower urinary tract. Normal and abnormal development of organs of the upper and lower genitourinary tract has been moved to KMBD which use to be CMBK. For more information, visit the following websites:
