Cancer Research & Clinical Trials

The next great discovery in cancer research and treatment could occur at any time. However, this can only happen with a focus on commitment, care and collaboration. This sense of commitment motivates and drives the Winship Cancer Institute treatment team each and every day. Their life's work revolves around a single idea: to accelerate the discovery of treatment for all types of cancer and to apply this discovery to give cancer patients and their families hope.

As the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center in Georgia, Winship at Emory joins 67 other NCI-designated centers in the United States.
