  • Genitourinary malignancies such as prostate, kidney and bladder cancer
  • Rare cancers including adrenal, neuroendocrine and thyroid cancer

Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center Clinical Trials, a partnership between the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Scottsdale Healthcare, will provide local coordination for the program.
