The Duke Prostate & Urologic Cancer Center has nine abstracts accepted for presentation at the 2018 Genitourinary Cancers (GU) Symposium of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) taking place Tuesday, Feb. 8 through Saturday, Feb. 10 in San Francisco, California.

Held annually, researchers throughout the world gather for a three-day scientific retreat to discover and 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. “Andrew Armstrong, MD, will be presenting on the treatment of prostate cancer with Radium-223, and the genomic and phenotypic evidence for prostate cancer osteomimicry in circulating tumor cells. We are committed to advancing our knowledge and moving science forward; GU ASCO is a great platform to further research collaborations with peers in academics and private industry.”
