Over 200 patients, physicians, researchers and friends from the NYU Langone community gathered at the 2016 Urology FUNRaiser to benefit the Urology Research Program at NYU School of Medicine. Held at The Plaza Hotel on September 28, the gala raised over $1 million to support groundbreaking research and exceptional educational opportunities for students, residents, fellows, and the urology community as a whole. The evening celebrated the longtime support of honorees Cynthia and Bruce Sherman, as well as the amazing accomplishments of the Department of Urology, now ranked in the Top Ten U.S. urology departments in the U.S by U.S. News & World Report and #6 for NIH urology funding.
