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 and 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.


  • 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
