NCI Designated Cancer Center
Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University
Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University is Georgia's first and only cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Designation requires meeting rigorous criteria for the depth and breadth of basic science and clinical research, in addition to cancer prevention, control, and population/behavioral sciences. Designation requires effective collaboration among various disciplines and with community partners in private practice and in academic centers throughout Georgia and across the nation. With this recognition comes the responsibility to provide public information, education and outreach to other health care professionals and the community. NCI designation for Winship gives Georgians improved access to clinical trials and resources that may not be available elsewhere.
The Winship Cancer Institute (Winship) at Emory University is a multidisciplinary matrix center that supports, facilitates, coordinates, and centralizes cancer research, quality oncology care, education, and dissemination at Emory University and its affiliate institutions in order to reduce the burden of cancer, associated morbidity, and mortality in the state of Georgia, the Southeastern region, and the U.S. Winship is dedicated to the integration of innovative clinical and basic science research with outstanding patient care for the prevention, treatment and control of cancer.
