Genitourinary Cancers Steering Committee
The Genitourinary Steering Committee (GUSC) was established in 2008.
The GUSC functions to harmonize an efficient, cost-effective, science-driven, and transparent process that will identify and promote the "Best Science" in genitourinary cancer clinical research by addressing the design and prioritization of phase 3 trials and large phase 2 studies.
