0:05 | NRG, it’s one of the most important cooperative groups out there. Basically, what that means is a number of physicians and researchers get together on a regular basis and put together and try to develop concepts that ultimately will help patients. We try to answer questions that are relevant to patients, in this case diagnosed with many cancers. It’s an organization [that] has, you know, actually has the ability to get together colleagues and experts from different specialties, including radiation oncology, urology, medical, oncology, imaging, etc. Their role in helping moving science forward, you know, for the treatment of cancer, it's super, super important and has been for a long time.
