The NCI Genitourinary Malignancies Center of Excellence (GUM-COE) brings together scientists studying genitourinary cancers (GU) from across NCI’s Center for Cancer Research (CCR), the Division of Cancer Epidemiology & Genetics (DCEG) as well as investigators who study GU malignancies in other institutes of the NIH.  Our goal is to provide a centralized resource and infrastructure aimed at accelerating the discovery, development, and delivery of interventions for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of these cancers.

Objectives

• Promote interaction and collaboration among investigators within the NCI, NIH, and extramurally
• Promote advances and opportunities for research in genitourinary cancers
• Leverage cutting-edge tools, approaches, and resources to advance findings as they apply to cancer research
• Train young investigators to address complex scientific questions through collaboration and multi-disciplinary approaches
