Dear friends and colleagues

It is with great pleasure to welcoming you in this year’s annual meeting of the SIU-UK section on “Current trends in Upper Urinary Tract Cancer”, held at the "Wellcome Collection" in London, the 20th May 2016.

The Programme includes State of the art lectures, Interactive case discussions and Poster presentations. Topics that will be presented and discussed:

  • Clinical, molecular, genetic and biologic characteristics of renal cancers including urothelial cancer of the upper urinary tract.
  • Contemporary understanding of small renal masses, including the role of pre management renal biopsy and active surveillance
  • Surgical management (open, laparoscopic and robotic) of localised, locally advanced (including caval tumours) and metastatic renal cancer
  • Current status of Ablative treatment options for renal cancer
  • Contemporary targeted therapy for renal cancers
  • Surgical and oncological management of upper urinary tract urothelial cancer
  • Discuss future surgical and oncological direction and research in non-metastatic and metastatic renal and upper urinary tract urothelial cancers.

The meeting is aimed towards urologists and oncologist, (includes trainees, fellows and consultants). It would also be useful for nursing staff with interests in renal cancer.

CME accreditation from BAUS has been confirmed with 6 CPD 

Of course, this kind of meeting can never be successful without you, the friends, colleagues and delegates to the meeting. We look forward to your active participation, in what we hope will be a high quality and productive scientific exchange.
