Affecting Lives


Georgia Tech research affects people’s lives, and this issue of Research Horizons magazine offers some excellent examples of the impact our faculty and students have each day.

Our cover story explores the many ways in which we’re helping improve the lives of sick children. Working closely with partners like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University, we’re developing new medical devices for children, creating new therapies to keep them healthy, and defining ways to use analytics and advanced computing to make health care smarter. We’re also looking to the future by educating the next generation of pediatric researchers, which helps fulfill Georgia Tech’s mission of improving the human condition.

Also in this issue, you will learn about Georgia Tech’s exciting work on keeping government, industry, and individuals safe from cyberattack. Across our campus, faculty and students are finding ways to mitigate today’s threats while preparing for what the future may hold.

Finally, you’ll get a peek inside some of the new corporate innovation centers that have recently opened on the Georgia Tech campus. A number of major corporations now have unparalleled access to everything Georgia Tech has to offer, which includes our highly talented students. In this article, the students explain how they are helping the companies meet their business goals and advance technology, all while gaining valuable real-world research experience.

Georgia Tech fuels an impressive innovation ecosystem that facilitates transformative opportunities, strengthens collaborative partnerships, and maximizes the economic and societal impact of the Institute’s research.

As you read this issue of Research Horizons magazine, you’ll see how we’re leveraging collaborative partnerships to create game-changing solutions to society’s most challenging problems.

As always, I welcome your feedback. Enjoy the magazine!
