Presidential Research Quest Fund 2014

Adam Klausner, MD & John E. Speich, PhD

Quest for Distinction logoAccording to Dr. Klausner, the grant was awarded for the proposal Mechanical Urgency: Correlation of novel bladder wall compliance measurements with patient recorded sensations during urodynamics.

“Our team will develop novel tests for the diagnosis and sub-categorization of patients with overactive bladder syndrome, a condition which affects nearly 20% of the worldwide population. Using a multi-disciplinary approach combining the skills sets of a urologist (Dr. Klausner) and mechanical engineer (Dr. Speich), we will incorporate new technology to objectively quantify urinary urgency and will employ bladder ultrasound imaging to non-invasively determine bladder wall tension during clinical urodynamics testing.”

About the VCU Presidential Research Quest Fund—the "Research Fund" is grounded in the President's commitment to develop and enhance faculty scholarship across the institution. Formally known as VCU Presidential Research Incentive Program (or PRIP), its goal is to afford all faculty internal funding opportunities to support new, emerging, or continuing research.
