Working Toward a Better Today and Healthier Tomorrow
Georgia Tech’s commitment to tackling medical challenges is underscored by our new million square-foot, state-of-the-art Engineered Biosystems Building, which opened in 2015. Here and elsewhere on campus, faculty and students are conducting breakthrough research with the goal of making health care more effective and accessible for people of all ages, the world over.
For years, medical researchers across the country have been working on a host of groundbreaking therapies using human cells to treat a range of diseases, from neurological leukodystrophies such as Krabbe disease, all the way to certain types of cancer.
Georgia Tech researchers are tackling one of the biggest challenges in pediatric medicine — medical technologies just for kids — as well as developing new technologies that help families access care from home.
