American Urological Association 2012 Annual MeetingAlthough there is a lot of buzz around ASCO 2012 in a few weeks time, this weekend sees the start of the annual meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA) in Atlanta.  AUA 2012 runs from May 19-23 at the Georgia World Congress Center.

A few of the sessions that caught my attention include:

  • Basic Science Symposium on Nanomedicine and its application to urology. Several speakers will discuss how nanoparticles can be used for drug delivery, imaging and as therapeutic tools.
  • Society for Basic Urologic Research (SBUR) and Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) joint meeting on personalized medicine and novel targets for cancer therapy.

For those of you who missed AUA 2011, you can obtain a flavor of the meeting from Sally Church’s video that was published on Pharma Strategy Blog.

If you can’t be in Atlanta, you can follow updates from the conference on Twitter (hashtag #UR012). A few people to follow at the meeting include @cooperberg_ucsf, @daviesbj, @MaverickNY@NeuroUroGastro.
