Schellhammer Urological
Research Foundation

The Foundation was established to unify and support a team of clinicians and scientists to develop more accurate diagnostic tests and successful treatment strategies for patients with diseases of the urogenital system, particularly prostate cancer. The original foundation, the Virginia Prostate Center, founded by Dr. Paul Schellhammer, later expanded the scope of research to include other cancers and benign urological diseases. The Foundation name was later changed to the Schellhammer Urological Research Foundation to honor its founder, Paul Schellhammer, MD.
