Our weekly Research in Progress seminar series is a forum for our faculty to present current research from their laboratories.

Research areas include basic science/translational, clinical, and behavioral/prevention science related to cancer. The research presented can be at any stage of development, including the earliest stages, where the background and hypotheses are strong, but data are incomplete. The purpose of these talks is to stimulate discussion, generate constructive feedback, and initiate collaboration.


The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University designates this live activity for a maximum of [number of credits] AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
