Research is a cornerstone of the Aflac Cancer Center's mission to enhance the lives of children with cancer and blood disorders. In collaboration with Emory University's Department of Pediatrics, the Emory Winship Cancer Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology and Morehouse University School of Medicine, we seek answers to the most challenging childhood oncologic and hematologic conditions through teaching and research. By constantly developing new techniques, treatments and cures, we are committed to advancing research and medicine in pediatric hematology/oncology.

Physicians and researchers at the Aflac Cancer Center hold Emory University faculty appointments. Laboratory-based research, both basic and translational, is performed by our researchers at the Emory campus, in conjunction with vibrant clinical research activities at Children’s.
