Other Partners

Emory is the lead partner in the Georgia CTSA, a consortium funded by the NIH and created to translate laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, engage communities in clinical research efforts, and train the next generation of clinical investigators. Other Georgia CTSA academic partners include Morehouse School of Medicine, Georgia Institute of Technology, and University of Georgia.

Emory and CDC have a number of research contracts and consulting partnerships. For example, Emory University Hospital's Serious Communicable Diseases Unit, where the first patients in the U.S. with Ebola virus disease were treated, was built in collaboration with CDC. Emory faculty serve as advisers on public health committees throughout CDC, and CDC officers frequently serve as adjunct faculty in Emory's schools of public health and medicine.
