The Woodruff Health Sciences Center is a national leader in life sciences research, attracting more than $300 million per year in sponsored research grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and other public and private sources. A primary focus at Emory is translational research, which rapidly moves basic discoveries from the laboratory into advances in patient care.
Strong partnerships with the nearby Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Cancer Society, Georgia Research Alliance, Georgia Cancer Coalition, and other Georgia research universities, provide numerous opportunities for research collaboration and funding.
Emory Winship Cancer Institute researchers come from a cross-section of disciplines and work collaboratively within our community of resources that exist locally, regionally, and nationally. Virtually all of our faculty are engaged in clinical or basic research, and most are collaborators on translational research projects. Research encompasses cancer prevention, oncology, pediatric oncology, molecular therapy, immunology, and cancer genetics. A group of seven shared core facilities provides high technology services open to investigators throughout Emory University.
