Emerging Biomedical Professionals


Emerging Biomedical Professionals, formerly known as the Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Association (PGA), is open to all Georgia Cancer Center trainees, including postdocs, graduate & medical students, post-graduate associates, clinical fellows, residents, international students, exchange scholars, and even junior faculty.


The peer-led PGA emerged following the Cancer Center Trainee Town Hall on January 17, 2014. Since then, the PGA has held monthly meetings, hosted social outings, and has participated in community outreach, Cancer Center tours, and educational programming events.
