We look across university labs and startups — and find there's so much to celebrate
For a dozen days in December 2018, we celebrated Georgia's brilliant (and fearless) scientists and entrepreneurs who drive so much innovation in our state. Here's the recap:
Day 1: Get a shot without ever feeling the needle? In your lifetime, most likely YES. See why >
Day 2: Who’s Wilbur Lam? Only one of the most prolific innovators in Georgia! Get to know him in 2 minutes. Watch >
Day 3: Meet the UGA research team that may well lead us to the Holy Grail of flu-fighting: A universal vaccine.

Mercer University’s Transmission Electron Microscope adds a new level of clarity – and competitiveness

Behold Mercer University’s Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), an instrument that gives researchers a clear view of organisms and cells at the molecular level. A big investment, yes, made by GRA last year — but well worth it, as the technology has proved to be a factor in advancing scientific research at Mercer.
