Researcher Profiles

Cancer is a complex disease, and scientists at The University of Georgia Cancer Center take a broad, multidisciplinary approach to fighting it. Our scientists are gaining insights on the basic mechanisms that underlie cancer and developing new diagnostics and therapeutics. They’re also uncovering ways to design more effective health education campaigns and to improve the quality of life of patients and survivors.
