Last week, the University of Georgia dedicated a new home for the Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM). This $25 million state-of-the-art facility—supported by $17 million in state funds—will help the center to expand its vital human health research.
The CMM was established in 2012 to create new diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive agents for various life-threatening diseases, such as heart disease and cancer. Now in its fifth year, the center continues to evolve as faculty pursue innovative ways to leverage molecular and cellular science against the grand human health challenges of our time.
The new facility is located next to UGA’s renowned Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, encouraging enhanced interdisciplinary collaboration between scientists. The building provides space for up to 10 teams of faculty to conduct research to improve lives and communities in Georgia and around the world.
