Accelerate therapeutic delivery innovation and translation to treat disease. REM’s initiative will achieve this goal, which will position Georgia as a leading innovation hub in this intellectual space and benefit Georgia’s knowledge economy, by fostering interdisciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations and supporting research ranging from fundamental to translational to positively impact human health.
The goal of this initiative is to support drug delivery research that has high innovation and potential for translational impact among diverse investigators at Emory, Georgia Tech and University of Georgia in the areas of tissue regeneration, cell therapy, and immune modulation.
