The AUA will continue to hold its highly successful Urologic Oncology Research Symposium, Basic Sciences Symposium, and Challenges for Urologic Research Series events, all of which will be half-day symposia. This year's Urologic Oncology Research Symposium will focus on "Personalizing Cancer Detection: Are We Improving with Genomics." The Basic Sciences Symposium is titled "Microbes and Inflammation in Urology," and the Challenges for Urologic Research Series will focus on "Tracking Outcomes for Gender-Affirming Surgery in Transgender/Non-Binary Patients." The AUA will also hold its "Early-Career Investigators Showcase," the only event at Annual Meeting dedicated to the work of early-career physician-scientists and researchers.

NEW FOR 2021: The AUA will offer the "Early-Career Scientist Exchange: Paving Your Path to NIH Funding" as part of the Virtual May Kick-off Weekend. This event will provide early-career investigators with an opportunity to interact with Program Officers across NIH and to get a head start on how they can best prepare to successfully apply for research funding.
