The Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University made strides in many areas in 2013; enrolling over 800 patients in new therapeutic trials, breaking ground on the Emory Proton Therapy Center, and delivering exciting research discoveries.
When it opened in 1937, Winship was the first center providing advanced care for cancer patients in the Southeast. Today, as Georgia's only National Cancer Institute Designated Cancer Center, Winship is among the nation's leaders in seeking out new ways to defeat cancer and in translating that knowledge into patient care. Winship envisions a future when science triumphs over cancer, and throughout its history, the people at Winship have stopped at nothing in their efforts to achieve that goal as soon as possible.
