Last November, the Executive Committee of the American Confederation of Urology (CAU) and the President of the Spanish Association of Urology (AEU), José Manuel Cózar, signed a collaboration agreement for the independent use of the Multicenter Studies Research Platform (MSRP-CAU). The MSRP-CAU is computer based tool for data storage, collection and management, that will be useful for CAU members to develop multicenter studies. This tool allows to storage and manage date from: - Records databases (retrospective) - Records databases (prospective).

During the Meeting for Residents in Urology, that took place in Mardel Plata, Argentina, Dr. Ana María Autrán, Scientific Coordinator of the Research Office, presented the platform and participated in the Critical Reading and Elaboration of a Scientific Article Course. The residents who participated in this course, in Mar del Plata, have presented a project, through Fernando Santomil, in charge of the CAU Residents Office. This project is being evaluated by the Research Office. We would like to invite you to be part of it!
