With over 400 faculty, Winship members represent nearly 40 departments within Emory University and collaborating institutions including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Cancer Society, Georgia Tech, and Morehouse School of Medicine. Each Winship member is aligned with one of four research programs, supported in part by the NCI Cancer Center Support Grant, which focus on scientific themes that align with member research: Cancer Cell Biology, Cancer Prevention and Control, Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics, and Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics. Numerous opportunities for collaborative studies and large team science research endeavors result from a variety of intra- and inter-programmatic activities.
Winship also provides its members centralized access to state-of-the-art equipment, scientific consultation, data, and biostatistics services through NCI supported shared resources.
Winship members are continuously seeking viable candidates for postdoctoral positions. Find and contact individual Winship members with your area of science interest to inquire about available postdoctoral training opportunities by browsing the faculty listing on our Winship members web page.
