Spotlight

  • Faculty
    CMDI
    Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection
    The Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection (CMDI) is an interdisciplinary collaboration at Georgia Tech seeking to understand the ecology, interactions and evolution of microbes. We are focused on the understanding microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions that are relevant to human health, ecosystem dynamics and sustainability.
  • Faculty
    CSSB
    Center for the Study of Systems Biology
    Recognized by most experts in the field as the future of biology, Systems Biology seeks to understand how complex living systems interact with each other so that we can diagnose and treat disorders such as cancer.
  • Faculty
    ACE
    Aquatic Chemical Ecology Center
    At Georgia Tech we have organized a diverse group of ecologists, chemists, sensory biologists, engineers, and quantitative modelers, to focus on chemical cues that many organisms use for to make basic survival decisions.
  • Faculty
    CBID
    Center for Biologically Inspired Design
    CBID is an interdisciplinary center for research and development of design solutions that occur in biological processes.
  • Faculty
    CIG
    Center for Integrative Genomics
    The Center for Integrative Genomics at Georgia Tech is a virtual affiliation of researchers interested in the application of genome-wide research strategies to diverse biological themes.
  • Gradiate
    ICRC
    Integrated Cancer Research Center
    The mission of the ICRC is to facilitate integration of the diversity of technological, computational, scientific and medical expertise at Georgia Tech and partner institutions in a coordinated effort to develop improved cancer diagnostics and therapeutics.
  • Faculty
    NanoMAD
    Center for NanoMAD
    Our mission is to develop new technologies for detecting, monitoring and controlling self-assembled macromolecular complexes at various levels, including their pathogenic consequences, biological roles and evolutionary origins.
