Innovative Research Happens Here
At Winship Cancer Institute, our clinical, basic, translational and population sciences research initiatives play a key role in our mission to serve our patients.
The discoveries initiated in our laboratories are easily translated to our clinical work. This means patients obtain quick access to new therapies and the opportunity to participate in unique clinical trials.
Winship is Georgia's first and only comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Designation requires meeting rigorous criteria for the depth and breadth of our basic science and clinical research, in addition to cancer prevention, control, and population and behavioral sciences.
Winship participates in the robust research environment of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center of Emory University, a national leader in life sciences. Supported by a collaborative infrastructure, state-of-art facilities, and programs of wide breadth and depth, highlights of research within Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University include our research programs and shared resources along with our translational research.
