The Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University is a National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center in Atlanta, Georgia. It is the only NCI-designated Cancer Center in the state of Georgia, and serves patients throughout the state and the Southeast. The Winship Cancer Institute is dedicated to the integration of innovative clinical and basic science cancer research with outstanding patient care for the prevention, treatment and control of cancer. We bring people together. Researchers, physicians, epidemiologists, nurses, engineers, and social workers come to work each day in order to take one step closer to eliminating cancer. It is a team approach, reflecting our commitment to an interdisciplinary and collaborative search for answers to why we get cancer, how we can prevent cancer, and how we can cure cancer. There is no place in Atlanta or in the state of Georgia that takes a more aggressive approach to finding these answers.
