Sometimes, the standard of care is not enough. That’s when Grady research offers hope.
As one of the nation’s elite teaching hospitals, our clinicians are continually involved in research to find better, more effective treatments. We are committed to investigations that will ultimately end the cancer. Physicians, oncologists, surgeons, and other cancer experts from the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory, Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine, and Grady Health System collaborate on research whose mission is to improve cancer treatments, test the effectiveness of new drugs, and transform cancer care.
On any given day, our experts are involved in literally dozens of cancer studies – from clinical trials to laboratory experiments. Grady’s history of research has helped to redefine how physicians worldwide treat cancer, stroke and other diseases. The benefit to patients is clear: They have access to tomorrow’s medicine today, providing options unavailable at many other institutions.
The center earned the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Certification which is awarded to outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet the highest, national standards for delivering quality cancer care. Grady is the first public hospital in Georgia to receive this recognition.
