Welcome to the University of Georgia Cancer Center
Cancer is a complex disease, and we at The University of Georgia Cancer Center are fighting it on four different fronts on behalf of Georgians.
We aim to:
- Revolutionize and redefine early detection
- Create treatments based on the discovery of new cellular targets
- Develop vaccines that recruit the body’s immune system to fight cancer
- Improve prevention efforts and the quality of life of patients and survivors
As Georgia’s largest and most comprehensive research university, we’re also committed to educating scientists who will build on the foundation of knowledge that we’re creating - they are Georgia's future cancer researchers and physicians.
Sonia Talathi’s interest in health and medicine ranges from the cellular mechanisms involved in prostate cancer to global health education campaigns. She’s presented findings of research that she started as a freshman at a national Society of Toxicology meeting and is working to get her findings published in a peer-reviewed journal. She’s also presented research findings in Costa Rica and has traveled to Uganda, where she did medical volunteer work and was inspired to focus on public health in developing nations. A double major in cell biology and broadcast news, she plans to attend medical school and then travel to developing countries to help them set up health news networks to disseminate information that can keep people healthy.MORE»
