We are a collaborative network of Swiss researchers dedicated to preclinical and clinical cancer research in the field of urogenital tumors. Our network includes a scientific committee comprised of SAKK members and the Swiss cancer researchers, bringing together experts in the field.

Scientific Comittee

Keynote Speakers

  • Prof. Dr. med. Bernhard Kiss, Inselspital Bern
  • Prof. Dr. Bernd Bodenmiller, Universitätsspital Zürich USZ

Why you should join

One of our key objectives is to inspire and foster scientific interactions among the various basic, translational, and clinical research groups in the field of urogenital cancers in Switzerland. To facilitate this, we organize an annual networking meeting where researchers present their ongoing work and engage with partners to further develop their ideas or implement project goals.

Why it is worth to join

  • Find a common ground for exchange between basic/translational researchers and clinical researchers in urogenital cancers in Switzerland
  • Create awareness about unmet clinical needs
  • Develop research ideas that may translate into clinical trials or subprojects of clinical trials in the SAKK Project Group Urogenital Tumors
  • Mentor and support young physicians/scientists in uro-oncology in the project implementation process and their careers

Who you will meet

  • Physicians (e.g., urologists, radiologists, oncologists, nuclear oncologists, pathologists)
  • Basic researchers (e.g., molecular biologists, biochemists, immunologist, bioinformaticians)
