ALBANY, N.Y., September 7, 2011-Barry Kogan, M.D., professor and chief of the division of urology at Albany Medical College, has received the American Urological Association Foundation's prestigious 2011 John W. Duckett Pediatric Urology Research Excellence Award.
The award is given annually to an individual for outstanding work in the field of pediatric research and for enhancing the treatment of children suffering with urologic conditions.
In addition to training residents and fellows and having an active clinical practice in pediatric urology, Dr. Kogan has led research efforts on a wide range of urological conditions and treatments, especially related to kidney problems diagnosed before birth and disorders of sex development in children. He has published extensively in many areas of pediatric urology and investigative urology and has often served as a consultant to the National Institutes of Health on research issues.
Under his leadership, the division of urology has become one of the leading places in the country for residents to train, in large measure due to the research activities of the division.
Dr. Kogan earned his medical degree from Northwestern University and did his residency at the University of Michigan. After a fellowship in pediatric urology in Liverpool, England, he joined the faculty at the University of California, San Francisco. In 1997, he joined the faculty at Albany Medical College and became the chief of the division of urology.
