Project Description

Building on our GUDMAP2 project, which focused on the dorsoventral (D-V) axis of the LUT, this study aims to identify and map the molecular regionalization of cells along the A-P axis of the mouse and human urethra, from the bladder to the urethral meatus. Our goal is to generate the foundation of data necessary to study how cell type identity along the urethra relates to development of congenital defects, such as urethral valves, enlarged prostatic utricle, urethral polyps, strictures, and agenesis of urethral structures.
