Feature: GRA Scholars at UGA commited to solving world’s grand challenges
The Georgia Research Alliance, a non-profit organization, has partnered with research universities since 1990 to provide world-class scientists who foster “science and technology-based development.” Many of these scholars here at UGA have enhanced the university’s research capabilities and impact.
UGA has recruited five GRA Eminent Scholars since 2015 which has led to a staggering 33 percent cumulative increase in research expenditures during the following period. These GRA program scientists bring benefits not only to the industries in which they research, but also students at UGA. Labs of GRA Eminent Scholars create high-level learning environment to help prepare them to become next-generation leaders in science.
Among these five scholars are C.J. Tsai, a GRA Eminent Scholar in Molecular Biology; Scott Jackson, a GRA Eminent Scholar in Plant Functional Genomics; Stephen Dalton, a GRA Eminent Scholar in Molecular Biology; Dennis Kyle, a GRA Eminent Scholar in Antiparasitic Drug Discovery; and Karen Norris, a GRA Eminent Scholar in Immunology and Translational Biomedical Research.
