Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Tom F. Lue, MD, FACS, Professor and Vice-Chair of Urology at UCSF, Emil Tanagho Endowed Chair in Clinical Urology, and the founder of the Knuppe Molecular Urology Laboratory
Location: The New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, New York, NY 10029
Join members of the NYAM Section on Urology, members of the New York Section of the AUA, and residents from area programs as they pay tribute to Dr. Tom F. Lue, this year’s recipient of the Ferdinand C. Valentine Award. Dr. Lue’s lecture will be on Non-Invasive Progenitor Cell Therapy.
Progenitor cells obtained from striated muscle, bone marrow and adipose tissue have been used for cell therapy. We have found a non-invasive method to recruit progenitor cells to a targeted organ without the need to harvest, isolate, and expand the cells and then inject to the tissue or organ. Examples will be given during the presentation.
About the Speaker(s)
Dr. Tom F. Lue graduated with highest honors from Kaohsiung Medical College in Taiwan in 1972. After completing urology residency at SUNY Downstate in 1981, he received a Valentine Fellowship from the New York Academy of Medicine to study neurourology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He is now Professor and Vice-Chair of Urology at UCSF, Emil Tanagho Endowed Chair in Clinical Urology, and the founder of the Knuppe Molecular Urology Laboratory. He is a recipient of NIH MERIT Award for his translational research in penile physiology and erectile dysfunction. His team discovered the anatomical mechanism of venous compression during penile erection, published the first article implicating TGF beta in the formation of Peyronie’s plaque, and developed the animal models for the study of Peyronie’s disease and stress urinary incontinence. He has developed four diagnostic tests for erectile dysfunction: the penile injection and stimulation test, the duplex ultrasound test for penile arterial flow, pharmacologic cavernosography for venous leakage, and the use of duplex ultrasound to diagnose priapism. He also developed seven new surgical procedures for Peyronie’s disease, priapism and erectile dysfunction. He has been the recipient of the American Urological Association's Gold Cystoscope Award and the American Foundation of Urological diseases’ Most Innovative Researcher Award. He Chaired the International Consultation on Sexual Medicine held in Paris in July 2003 serving as lead author of its published proceedings. He was the honorary president of the same meeting in Paris in July 2009. In May 2012, he received the Presidential Citation Award for his research in ED, priapism and Peyronie’s disease from the American Urological Association.
Dr. Lue's current basic science research projects involve the development of a non-invasive progenitor cell therapy for various degenerative diseases including erectile dysfunction, stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder and degenerative renal diseases.
Besides being listed in The Best Doctors in America and America’s Top Doctors for many years, he was named one of the 8 top doctors for men by Men’s Health Magazine in 2003. He has published more than 410 peer reviewed articles and more than 100 book chapters. His research team has trained more than 70 postgraduate doctors from many countries.
