The Georgia Cancer Center at the Medical College of Georgia brings together a team of basic science researchers, clinicians, radiation oncologists, nurse navigators and patient support staff to create a community fostering innovation and care focused on improving the lives of our patients.
This team approach is focused on patients across the state of Georgia and neighboring states providing access to more first-in-the-nation clinical trials, world-renowned experts and a multidisciplinary approach that keeps the patient at the center of care.
Research at the Georgia Cancer Center’s M. Bert Storey Research Building focuses on the most promising pathways for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Several of our researchers are involved with investigator-initiated clinical trials, transitioning their research into the clinic. But, there are opportunities for even more breakthroughs. You can make it happen.
The M. Bert Storey Research Building houses the basic science teams with four floors of open concept-lab space, shared resources and special equipment. The Georgia Cancer Center focuses on four elements of cancer research including:
The Georgia Cancer Center houses a dedicated cancer clinical research unit that oversees the center’s own Phase I-IV trials and manages studies from throughout the medical center offered in conjunction with oncology departments such as radiology and gynecologic oncology.
One of the Georgia Cancer Center’s main goals is to reach out to our community, engage them in partnerships, and empower them to become catalysts and work together to increase healthy behaviors, prevent many cancers and reduce the risk of developing many others.
The Georgia Cancer Center at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University is dedicated to reducing the burden of cancer in Georgia and across the globe through superior care, innovation, and education. Through unprecedented expansion, the Georgia Cancer Center is providing access to more first-in-the-nation clinical trials, world-renowned experts and life-saving options.
