ANZUP is a cancer-cooperative clinical trials group that brings together all of the professional disciplines and groups involved in researching and treating urogenital cancers and conduct high quality clinical research. We identify gaps in evidence and areas of clinical need, collaborate with the best clinicians and researchers in these trials and communicate frequently and effectively with the broader community along the way.
Celebrating 10 years of ANZUP
From humble beginnings, ANZUP is now recognised nationally and internationally for its genitourinary clinical trials. ANZUP was formed by the merger of the Australian Prostate and Urogenital cancer Group (APUG) and Australia & New Zealand Germ Cell Trials Group (ANZGCTG) in 2008. Since then, ANZUP has come a very long way. We have grown from 150 members in 2008 to more than 1,500 members across more than 20 disciplines in 2019.
We have active clinical trials across all of the cancers we represent. We work closely with those doing basic or translational research, supportive care research, health economics and other health outcomes work, and many others. We have established collaborations with trials groups in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, UK, Europe, USA, Canada, and others planned. We have built relationships with key stakeholders including those involved in
community support, advocacy and fundraising. We are frequently and visibly present at major international meetings, sharing and promoting our work.
The future of research in Australia depends on bringing young scientists and clinicians together to set the research agenda to ensure we continue to improve outcomes. ANZUP’s Annual Scientific Meeting provides an ideal platform to discuss and present the latest updates in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and supportive care. In addition, we have grown our concept development to annual full day workshops mentoring and fostering people early in their careers. If this wasn’t enough, we have expanded our educational program to include MDT Masterclasses, the PCFA ANZUP Nurses Symposium, GU Preceptorships, Best of ANZUP and more!
I would like to acknowledge and recognise our fearless leaders and pioneers Ian Davis and Guy Toner along with our incredibly hard working Board, SAC, CAP, Subcommittees and our membership. Without your generosity, hard work and tireless commitment, we would not be celebrating this milestone 10th anniversary. Thank you.
