The Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) awarded the 2018 Huggins Medal to Dr. Martin Gleave. The medal is presented in recognition by the SUO of a major contribution and/or lifetime achievement in research and/or clinical practice that has contributed to the progress in the treatment for patients with genitourinary neoplasms. It has been awarded annually since 2001.

The Huggins Medal is named after Charles B. Huggins, MD, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1966 in recognition of his work on the hormonal treatment of prostate cancer. The Society of Urologic Oncology's mission is to enable qualified members primarily interested in the care of patients with malignant genitourinary diseases to meet for the purpose of discussion, development, and implementation of ideas to improve care.

Dr. Gleave received the medal and presented the corresponding Huggins lecture, "Targeting the Adaptive Molecular Landscape of Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer", at the SUO’s 2018 Annual Meeting on November 29, 2018.
