WAYS TO DISCOVER

As the largest public research university in Georgia, we are proving our way leads to life- and world-changing discoveries.

Our labs and research centers are at the forefront, racing the clock to develop vaccines for viruses, examining the ways families cope following natural disasters, analyzing stock market anomalies and locating long-lost stars in the Milky Way.

Doing things THESTATEWAY® means recruiting faculty who can accelerate problem-solving. And it means encouraging researchers to think big, push boundaries and disrupt the status quo.

“My most recent research project focused on how socially anxious individuals are emotionally affected by competitive environments. I found that social anxiety had no significant effect on emotional distress or motivation, revealing just how complex it truly is.”
