Georgia is poised to become one of the nation’s top emerging life science hubs. With a critical mass of life science organizations and companies leading innovations for the industry, projected growth in Georgia’s life science-related occupations exceeds that of the U.S. overall, increasing by seven percent over the next 10 years.

The Center for Global Health Innovation (CGHI) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was launched in January 2020 to bring talented people and companies together in the Global Health, Health Technology, and Life Sciences industries to accelerate the innovation opportunities inside of Global Health problems and provide tomorrow’s solutions for today’s health challenges. We work on behalf of 400+ member and partner organizations to advance the growth of the life sciences industry by driving public policy, building a network of industry leaders, creating access to capital, introducing cutting-edge STEM education programs, and creating robust value-driven purchasing programs.

Join us for our next Bio Launchpad Seminar to hear about:

  • The competitive position and performance of the state’s life sciences industry and the innovation ecosystem in which it operates 
  • How to access companies, serial entrepreneurs, and potential investors
  • How to connect with patient groups to understand patient needs
  • Leadership and career opportunities for students
  • Can’t miss events including the Innovation Summit, Research Showcase, social networking events, career fair and more etc.

This event in the series is co-hosted by Georgia Tech's Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB), VentureLab, and CMaT. For inquiries or suggestions about future seminars, contact Cynthia Sundell, Senior Director of Life Sciences, IBB, or Harold Solomon, Principal, VentureLab.
