Research

Emory is one of the nation's leading research universities, building on an uncommon combination of campus-based resources and global partnerships.

We support our researchers in the advancement of public scholarship, accelerating the application of discoveries and communicating their significance to general audiences. In doing so, we better advance Emory's mission "to create, preserve, teach and apply knowledge in the service of humanity."
