ATP and purinergic signalling lower urinary tract Geoffrey Burnstock Memorial
Urology, Pure and Applied Science

Professor Geoffrey Burnstock (1929–2020) was a neurobiologist who advanced biomedical knowledge through his pioneering work on purinergic signalling. Professor Burnstock’s illustrious career was recognised by accolades including Fellow of the Royal Society (1986), Australian Academy of Science's Macfarlane Burnet Medal (2017) and Companion of the Order of Australia (2018). He is best known for demonstrating that extracellular ATP acts as a signalling molecule across many areas. This workshop will review what we currently know of bladder purinergic signalling in the bladder and pathophysiological changes. Translational impacts of Professor Burnstock’s legacy will be discussed in the context of clinical urology.
