As a student at one of Georgia's only four comprehensive research universities, there are countless opportunities to delve into research. We believe that student research sparks critical thinking and creativity. It hones the ability to pose the right question, find the right answer and distill the messy, complex, and abstract thoughts of a lab notebook into an elegant argument.
Research encourages team-work and other skills that are transferable to the real world. We believe that research is the innate human pursuit of progress and service. It is the catalyst of innovation and it has been, and will forever remain, a great adventure.
