Paul Lange, professor and chair of urology
, was invited to give the honorary John K. Lattimer lecture at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association
in Anaheim, Calif., earlier this month.
The Lattimer lecture is given each year by someone who has made outstanding contributions to the science of urology during his or her career. Lange's talk covered the controversial subject of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Lange is internationally known for his clinical and research work in prostate cancer. He discussed what is known and what is controversial about the subject. He ended with information about new genetic markers and a plea to urologists to increase their efforts to establish better communication and clinical contact with patients.
