Dr. Liu specializes in the treatment of all genitourinary cancers and is a recognized clinical researcher as evident by his service on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Genitourinary Oncology Core Committee as the Genitourinary (GU) Liaison for the ECOG Developmental Therapeutics Committee, for which he is also a member. He currently serves as the disease group leader for the GU Oncology Disease Group, a NCI-designated Phase II Consortium, and thus is highly active in local, regional, and national trials in all stages of development. Dr. Liu is also a member of the experimental therapeutics (Phase I) program at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, and thus is involved in early drug development.
