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 three different fronts on behalf of Georgians.

We aim to:

  • Develop new methodologies for tumor early detection
  • Find new targets both inside and on the cancer cell surface to develop novel therapeutic drugs
  • Improve prevention efforts and the quality of life of patients and survivors


Due to a generous gift from a UGA alumnus who is a survivor of metastatic melanoma, the UGA Cancer Center and Emory Winship Cancer Center held a retreat in July 2022 at Stone Mountain, GA. The primary goal of the retreat was to provide opportunities for the faculty and students from both Centers to share research interests and develop collaborations that will lead to funding that will impact cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Joint seed grant funding opportunities were also announced and will foster new collaborations between the two cancer centers.
