The Georgia Cancer Center M. Bert Storey Research Building provides quality research space to promote multidisciplinary collaborations and translational research, which is essential to creating an environment that promotes innovation.

The research and innovations developed at the Georgia Cancer Center ultimately influence the global network of cancer care. Our team fights for far more than just Georgians. The learnings achieved through the care of local patients has wide-reaching implications for creating tomorrow’s standard of cancer care. Through facilitating first-in-the-nation trials and growing a depth of understanding only available through a multidisciplinary approach, the Cancer Center team is equipped to deliver treatment advancements that will be applied in facilities across the world.

Our research approach supports important National Cancer Institute goal of ensuring every cancer patient has access to the newest and most innovative clinical trials in the nation. Clinicians and researchers work together to initiate new research protocols based on the clinician’s interaction with the patient. Each cancer patient receives personalized treatment through the interaction of the multidisciplinary team of clinicians and allied health professionals.
