Almost every new ground-breaking cancer treatment has been a result of clinical trials research. ANZUP works towards improving treatments and outcomes by undertaking clinical trials in below the belt (prostate, bladder, kidney, penile and testicular) cancer. These trials and research allows us to test better ways of helping people.
