2020 GU ASCO Presentations

The DCI Center for Prostate & Urologic Cancers has 31 abstracts accepted for presentation at the 2020 Genitourinary Cancers (GU) Symposium of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) taking place Thursday, Feb. 13 through Saturday, Feb. 15 in San Francisco, California.

Held annually, researchers throughout the world gather for a three-day scientific retreat to share groundbreaking research in genitourinary malignancies. Over the course of the symposium, attendees will engage in educational sessions, keynote lectures, oral abstract presentations and poster sessions highlighting the latest, breakthrough science in prostate and urologic cancers.

“We are pleased to showcase our data at this year’s GU ASCO symposium and be a part of the cutting-edge research and paradigm shifts in clinical care for prostate and urologic cancers,” said Daniel George, MD, director of genitourinary oncology at Duke Cancer Institute. “This year, our team contributed to 31 publications selected for presentation overall, and 10 of which we will lead. We are committed to advancing our knowledge and moving science forward, and GU ASCO is a great platform to further research collaborations with peers in academics and private industry.”
