Dr. Frank Tu's current research focus is in the field of female pelvic pain disorders, where he is funded by an NIH/NICHD K23 grant to study pelvic floor musculoskeletal dysfunction in visceral pain disorders such as endometriosis and painful bladder syndrome/interstitial cystitis. He is also a co-investigator on an NIH/NIDDK multisite grant, Multidisciplinary Approach to Pelvic Pain.
Dr. Tu and Dr. Hellman will join the Pelvic Messenger to share how their research is progressing.
