OIBR Participates in a GRA-backed Alliance that Received a $55M NIH Grant

The Owens Institute for Behavioral Research is proud to be a part of one of the largest research grants in our state’s history! In September, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded $55 million to expand a collaborative partnership that includes the University of Georgia, Emory, Georgia Tech and Morehouse School of Medicine. The group will be known as the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance (Georgia CTSA) and will focus on improving clinical research and translating results into better outcomes for patients.

Lillian T. Eby, PhD., Director of OIBR, will be representing OIBR’s expertise with faculty development and mentoring on this important grant. A member of our Grantsmanship Development Program, Dorothy Carter (GDP Class of 2016-18), is also a part of this effort and is offering her expertise in team science and leadership.
