Faculty members are nationally recognized for subspecialty care in areas including pediatric oncology, brain tumors, head and neck cancer, lymphoma, and lung cancer. The Department operates four clinical sites in the Atlanta area, with a fifth site, the 5-room Emory Proton Therapy center, scheduled to open in late 2018.
As Georgia’s first and only NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Winship Cancer Institute coordinates subspecialties of cancer diagnostic imaging, care, and research throughout the university.
