The University of Georgia

The mission of the UGA Center for Molecular Medicine is to better understand the molecular and cellular basis of human disease, and then to use this information for the development of new therapies, cures and diagnostics.

About the Center

The University of Georgia announced the creation of its Center for Molecular Medicine with Stephen Dalton, PhD, as its founding director, in fall 2012. Development of the CMM complements UGA’s recent thrust into human health, which is marked by the opening of a new health sciences campus that includes a medical school campus operated in partnership with Georgia Health Sciences University (formerly the Medical College of Georgia), as well as the rapidly expanding College of Public Health. Over the next few years, CMM will be expanding  through the recruitment of up to eight new faculty.

A groundbreaking for a new state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility for the new CMM will be held December 1, 2015 in its new location, adjacent to the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center.


Center for Molecular Medicine to break ground

The University of Georgia is continuing its move into the human health arena through a new building that will soon house the Center for Molecular Medicine.
