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 $507.1 million from external funding agencies in fiscal year 2013. Awards were led by federal agencies, with approximately $333.8 in funding, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with $287 in funding.

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.
