SAKK/Astellas GU-Oncology Award

To further preclinical and clinical oncology research in Switzerland, SAKK and Astellas have joined forces in the form of the Swiss GU-Oncology Award. A researcher will be awarded as representative of a research group or project for an outstanding scientific and/or clinical achievement as documented by a scientific publication (published paper or accepted manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal).

The focus of the SAKK / Astellas GU-Oncology Award lies on potential tangible improvements for patient management and outcomes in the treatment of genitourinary cancers. The award is endowed with CHF 30’000.- and should encourage the continuation of research activities, hence the awarded sum is to be used for ongoing and future research within the respective research group or project.
