Research plays an important role in Augusta University’s mission of providing leadership and excellence in teaching, discovery, clinical care and service.
We pride ourselves on our clinical and translational research programs, which focus on three key areas: cancer, cardiometabolic disease and neurological disease. By studying these diseases, which disproportionately affect Georgians, we can better serve our patients. Our researchers are also developing three emerging areas of research strength: regenerative and reparative medicine, personalized medicine and genomics, and public and preventive health.
We built state-of-the-art research facilities to help embody our vision of being a top-tier university that is a destination for education, health care, discovery, creativity and innovation. We’ve developed 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.
This structure and partnerships combined with our collaborative environment and outstanding clinical resources place Augusta University at the leading edge of new scientific advancements targeting diseases that directly impact our patients.
Several independent labs, centers and institutes engage faculty and students from across the university. Academic departments also sponsor numerous other research labs and programs.
Undergraduates and graduates attending Augusta University have the opportunity to enhance learning through direct participation in research and scholarship.
The university research enterprise is supported by numerous offices, including the Division of Sponsored Program Administration and the Office of Clinical Investigative Services.
