Augusta University is involved in nearly 300 different funded research activities and related studies in its Colleges of Allied Health Sciences, Dental Medicine, Graduate Studies, Medicine and Nursing. Research is carried out in both basic and clinical disciplines.
Our research programs and facilities complement our educational objective of training the next generation of world class innovators, leaders, and health care providers.
Cores, or Shared Research Resources are institutionally funded and supported research centers that are dedicated to meeting scientists’ research needs. Augusta University's Cores Laboratories and or Shared Research Resources are supported by the Senior Vice President for Research.
We conduct research, a great deal of which is done through clinical trials in humans (known as human subject research). There are many federal requirements that all research institutions must meet in order to conduct human subject research.
We are actively marketing and commercializing exciting and promising new technologies, which can change the future for the better.
The Division of Sponsored Programs Administration and the Augusta University Research Institute serve as a central unit to coordinate and support Augusta University’s Internal and External Sponsored Projects.
