The Emory /Georgia Tech Predictive Health Institute is combining an interdisciplinary research core with a clinical testing ground for new predictive biomarkers of health, disease risk and prognosis aimed at keeping people healthy.

The research core links the expertise of the systems biology program at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory, and Emory programs in anthropology, public health and human genetics.  It also relies on the expertise of ethicists, behaviorists, health economists and other disciplines from across the universities.
