Research at Georgia Regents University
The mission of Georgia Regents University is to provide leadership and excellence in teaching, discovery, clinical care, and service as a student-centered comprehensive research university and academic health center with a wide range of programs from learning assistance through postdoctoral studies.
Our vision is to be a top-tier university that is a destination of choice for education, health care, discovery, creativity, and innovation.
Clinical and translational research programs at GRU focus on three key areas that disproportionately affect the health of Georgians: cancer, cardiometabolic disease, and neurological disease including stroke. We are also developing three emerging areas of research strength: regenerative & reparative medicine, personalized medicine & genomics, and public and preventive health.
We have strong regional partnerships with the Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the Augusta Warrior Project, the Savannah River National Laboratory, and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center that further support research in these key areas.
Our state of-the-art research facilities, collaborative research environment, and outstanding clinical resources place GRU at the leading edge of new scientific advancements targeting diseases that directly impact our patient population. We look forward to working with you as we move forward during this exciting period of research growth and discovery.
