New Cancer Research Center to Be Launched at Clark Atlanta University

The Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development at historically black Clark Atlanta University is teaming up with the Integrative Cancer Research Center at Georgia Tech to launch a new institute to conduct research on prostate cancer. The new Collaborative Cancer Genomics Center will conduct genetic research to identify those who are disposed to prostate cancer, as well as to ovarian, pancreatic, and lung cancer. The 20,000-square-foot gene sequencing center will be situated on the Clark Atlanta campus and will be directed by Shafiq Khan, chair of the department of biological sciences at the university.
