Right now in Georgia, scientists are at work in university laboratories, pushing the boundaries of exploration.

They're aided by talented post-docs, graduate students and research staff.

These teams advance knowledge in their fields — sometimes in a big way. Quite often, they invent or discovery something so important, a new company is launched.

The Georgia Research Alliance works to expand this research activity, which brings major economic benefits to our state. We also seed and shape companies around inventions and discoveries.
