2022 Course Overview

Beginning in 1982, the multidisciplinary Urologic Cancer Course was designed as a biennial course bringing together expertise from all the Harvard teaching hospitals in conjunction with invited world class experts in urologic oncology, medical oncology, and radiation oncology. Dr Marc B. Garnick led the course from 1982 to 1996 at which time Dr Jerome P. Richie assumed the leadership until 2014. Dr. Phillip W. Kantoff then led the course and subsequently in 2016 Dr Adam Kibel, Dr Toni Choueiri and Dr. Anthony V D’Amico co-led the course.
In 2022 our keynotes will be delivered by 2 internationally renowned scholars. Dr. George Daley Dean of Harvard Medical School and Dr. Lindsey Baden Principle Investigator of the Covid Moderna Trial.
