Each of the Georgia Cancer Center facilities are designed with a purpose.
The Georgia Cancer Center has three missions, one laboratory-based, one clinic-based and one education-based. Using a modern, scientific approach known as evidence-based design along with the expert advice of cancer patient advisors, our treatment facilities bring in nature and sunlight and puts patients in charge in as many ways as possible. Our research facilities celebrate innovation, combining form with function to offer our scientists an environment for collaboration and discovery.
The Georgia Cancer Center's M. Bert Storey Research Building first opened in 2006
at a cost of $54 million. In December 2018, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal took part
in a grand opening ceremony for the $65 million expansion project. The project includes
the Collaborative Connector building suspended over Laney Walker Boulevard. The M.
Bert Storey Research Building houses administrative offices, laboratories and special
equipment for researchers, such as flow cytometry resources. It also provides meeting
space for seminars and lectures, which draws an audience from across the campus; training
sessions on sophisticated software used in research, and community-wide forums on
cancer-related topics. The Georgia Cancer Center is home to some 35 Augusta University
research faculty and approximately 175 associated personnel. Laboratories have an
open floor plan to allow work areas to flow into each other, fitting the collaborative
nature of research today.
