Commencing with an overview of the current clinical landscape in urothelial carcinoma, the discussion transitioned to strategies for adapting to upcoming changes in the standard of care. Subsequently, attention shifted to renal cell carcinoma, with a focus on identifying novel biomarkers and designing trials to mitigate treatment-related toxicities. The session concluded with an exploration of unmet needs in rare genitourinary indications, underscoring the importance of addressing gaps in research for conditions such as penile and testicular cancer


Through collaborative efforts and the expertise of our participants, the session sparked insightful debates and generated innovative ideas for IITs targeting identified unmet needs


In summary, the session was a resounding success, characterized by the emergence of innovative ideas and fruitful networking with globally renowned oncologists. We are excited to implement their suggestions into meaningful clinical trials.
