A visionary partnership between Emory and Georgia Tech serves as a blueprint for collaboration between private and public research universities. This collaborative network attracts top researchers whose work enriches lives around the world.
Emory and Georgia Tech, which are Atlanta's only members of the prestigious Association of American Universities, together spent nearly $1.25 billion on scientific research last year. They support about 50,000 jobs altogether. And as members of the Georgia Research Alliance, they have started a combined 70 companies and introduced some 60 products.
Researchers at Emory University received $521.8 million from external funding agencies in fiscal year 2014, a 2.56 percent increase over last fiscal year. This marks the fifth consecutive year that research funding has exceeded $500 million.
Researchers in Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) received nearly $483 million in FY14, or nearly 93 percent of the University total, with nearly $325 million in federal funding, including more than $288 million from the NIH.

Many hospitals refer patients with the most complex and challenging conditions to Emory, knowing that Emory has not only the expertise to care for them but also a long tradition of putting service ahead of reimbursement. The stories in the 2013 Community Benefits Report illustrate that tradition.
