About the 34th Annual EAU Congress, March 15-19, Barcelona, Spain:

The 2019 European Association of Urology Annual Meeting will aim to encompass all topics in the overarching field of urology. It will host over 300 scientific sessions, 1,500 renowned speakers, and an expected 150 exhibitors. Participants will have opportunities for training, networking, and visiting an exhibition of the technological and pharmaceutical breakthroughs from leading companies. The EAU addresses the most pressing issues of urological care in Europe through scientific and educational initiatives as well as publications.


Vladimir Mouraviev, MD, PhD, was a fellowship-trained urological surgeon. He completed his medical school training and surgical internship at State Military Medical Academy, in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and went on to serve as a military surgeon. He then completed his surgical and urological residency at the Academy’s Department of Surgery, specializing in urogenital injuries, reconstructive urology, and general urology. There, he rose from the ranks of Instructor to Assistant Professor of Surgery and Urology, also defending a PhD thesis in uro-pathological features of urethral disruption after crushed injury to the pelvis. Dr. Mouraviev received training in oncological urology and endourology in clinics based in Germany, Sweden, and Poland. In North America, he completed three clinical and two research fellowships in urological oncology, endourology, and neurourology/urodynamics sequentially at Baylor College of Medicine, Vancouver Prostate Center, Duke University Medical Center, the University of Cincinnati, and the Bladder Health and Reconstructive Urology Institute in Miramar, Florida. At Duke, he was the Director of the Prostate Cancer Center Outcome Database, and pioneered and developed a concept of focal therapy for prostate and kidney cancer. He later founded and organized an annual International Duke-Amsterdam symposium on this topic. From 2012 to 2015, he worked as a Director of Clinical Research Department for a large urology group, Associated Medical Professionals, in Syracuse, New York, and conducted 35 clinical research trials, 5 of which the group championed into nationwide testing of novel surgical modalities and medications in different areas of urology.
