Built in honor of the late US Senator whose beliefs in education steered his lifelong efforts in the Georgia Senate, United States Senate and International Peace Corps., this 135,000 sf Institute develops strategies for health related problems and an intellectual incubator. The facility houses specialists from a multitude of disciplines, ranging from disease and immunology experts to mathematicians and engineers, all of whom are already involved in biomedically important research and committed to collaboration — and not just with colleagues in their own fields. Interdisciplinary research is the driving concept behind the Center, said David Lee, the University of Georgia’s vice president for research. and a gathering point for researchers and students in three main fields: Molecular Medicine, Neuroscience and Public Health. The building also includes a 17,850 sf animal barrier facility for rodents and a 4,800 sf biomedical imaging facility.
