About Augusta University
PROVIDING IMPORTANT SUPPORT TO MEMBERS OF THE GEORGIA CANCER CENTER AND THEIR COLLABORATORS
The five-story, 167,000-square-foot cancer research facility opened in 2006 at a cost of $54-million. It houses administrative offices, laboratories and special equipment for researchers, such as flow cytometry resources. It also provides meeting space for seminars and lectures, training sessions on sophisticated software used in research, and community-wide forums on cancer-related topics. Laboratories have an open floor plan to allow work areas to flow into each other, fitting the collaborative nature of research today.
In addition to the Augusta University Core Labs, the Georgia Cancer Center provides a number of shared research services and facilities that provide important support to members of the Cancer Center and their collaborators. These resources are available for both Augusta University and non-Augusta University faculty and researchers, offering access to state-of-the-art technology and bioinformatics at an affordable cost. Training, consultation and support are also available
