As the title of this course illustrates, clinical practice informs basic science research, and that research in turn informs clinical practice. The field of oncology is an excellent example of this – discoveries in molecular biology and genetics have revolutionized clinical care for patients with cancer. New genomic technologies are allowing us to understand molecular changes that underlie cancer development, with the promise of more specific diagnoses and individualized treatment options. In this course, genitourinary cancers will be discussed with an emphasis on how research and advances in technologies are impacting clinical care of cancer in the urinary tract and male genital tract.
