- DELIVERING ECONOMIC IMPACT THROUGH INNOVATIONWith more than $122 million in sponsored funding, our research generated an economic impact of $319 million in fiscal year 2018. Across campus, Georgia State scientists are working to solve global problems and produce tomorrow’s life-changing inventions and technologies.News
- SPOTLIGHT: UNIVERSAL FLU VACCINESeasonal flu vaccines are often unreliable because they can only target specific strains of the virus. Bao-Zhong Wang, associate professor in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences, is working to develop a “super vaccine” by targeting an interior part of the virus’ surface protein, called the hemagglutinin stalk. This interior part is the same in all influenza viruses, meaning the vaccine would be effective against virtually any strain.News
- SPOTLIGHT: BIG DATA AND THE BRAINWhile there are all sorts of biomarkers for identifying physical illness — blood tests for diabetes, X-rays for broken bones, CT scans for cancer — detecting mental illness is more elusive. Professor Vince Calhoun and his colleagues at the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS) are helping reshape the mental health landscape by using AI to pull more data from brain imaging scans, creating a new picture of mental illness in the brain.News

About the Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine
The Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine at Georgia State University meets healthcare needs by converting significant research findings into diagnostic tools and medicines to improve the health of individuals. The center is designed to help millions of people suffering from heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses. The current research focus of the center is to dissect molecular insights of cardiovascular remodeling in obesity and obesity related diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases, and stroke, with special emphasis on the regulation of these processes.
Ming-Hui Zou, an internationally recognized researcher in molecular and translational medicine and a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Molecular Medicine and associate vice president for research at Georgia State University, is the founding director of the Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine at Georgia State.
An independent investigator of the National Institutes of Health, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, and the American Diabetes Association, and a National Scientist Development and National Established Investigator awardee of the American Heart Association, Zou has used these (and many other awards) to make scientific observations in fields with great potential for immediate clinical relevance.Read more about Zou
