The UCLA Institute of Urologic Oncology (IUO) brings together a multidisciplinary team of physicians and scientists to develop and deliver targeted, leading-edge therapies for patients diagnosed with prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers, which strike nearly 350,000 Americans each year and lead to more than 50,000 deaths. The IUO is leading the way in translational and biotechnological research in these cancers, providing patients with early access to the best available treatments with the ultimate goal of dramatically reducing the death rates.
