Note: The Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) of Emory University is part of a national consortium striving to improve the way biomedical research is conducted across the country. The consortium, funded through the NIH’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), shares a common vision to translate laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, engage communities in clinical research efforts, and train the next generation of clinical investigators.

The Department of Medicine places strong emphasis on its broad and innovative research programs. The nine Emory University Department of Medicine divisions (and ACTSI) perform basic, translational, and clinical research related to physiology, therapeutics, and disease pathogenesis. Our basic scientists, clinical researchers, and clinicians work side-by-side to address fundamental problems in human disease. For more information, visit our website.
