The two institutions also collaborate on initiatives in nanotechnology, vaccine delivery, clean air and water, health services research, regenerative medicine, bioinformatics, neurosciences, pediatrics, medical devices, immunoengineering, and design of "smart" facilities and equipment to help the elderly and disabled.
  • Georgia Research Alliance (GRA)
    The GRA is a partnership of business, research universities, and state government that fosters economic development. Through the GRA, the state invests in Emory research in nanotechnology, cancer, pediatrics, screening for new drugs, vaccines, AIDS, immunology, transplantation, clinical trials, bioinformatics, autism, imaging, and Alzheimer’s disease.
