We support our researchers with resources to help them conduct studies, communicate the significance of their findings, and speed the application of discoveries.

Our core facilities provide access to technologies, equipment, and support services to help researchers manage and interpret data, as well as a network of resources at partnering institutions.

Our centers operate some of the most respected programs in the world for translational, clinical, and scientific research, with specialty areas in medicine's fastest-growing fields.

Our research training programs are preparing investigators for the next life-saving discovery.

What are the moments scientists “live for,” and what spurs them despite setbacks and failures? Read more about the role researchers played in Emory's path to becoming a drug discovery powerhouse.

The Latest in Emory Research

Ask Kylie Smith why the humanities are important to health care, and she will tell you that the answer is in the word itself. “To administer effective health care, you have to be able to understand humans and their complexities,” says Smith, an associate professor at the Emory University Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. “Many health care problems we are trying to fix are caused by historical or policy issues, so you really can’t get the whole picture if you are not thinking about how it got this way.”
