Interdisciplinary Groups

Faculty within ILS specialize in many thematic research areas, including but not limited to the following interdisciplinary groups. These groups are not degree granting, but involve faculty from degree granting departments affiliated with ILS. As an ILS student, you can pursue research in any departmental or interdisciplinary thematic area or you can define your own unique research topic.

Research Group

Cancer

Molecular and cellular cancer research at UGA encompasses many departments and programs. The common bond between these researchers is a focus to understand the fundamental mechanisms of oncogenesis and cancer progression to develop novel cancer therapeutics and diagnostics.
Additional thematic groups of faculty can be found on our Training Grant webpage: Disease Ecology, Genetics, Glycoscience, and Tropical & Emerging Global Diseases.
