About Us
Do you care about making a change in healthcare? Join the AppHatchery! We support the creation of simple mobile app ideas through strategy, user research, design, development, and MVP clinical study for clinical researchers at Emory University, Georgia Tech, Morehouse School of Medicine, and UGA. The center's goal is to advance clinical research through the development of mobile apps used by patients and clinicians. More information is available on our website at https://www.apphatchery.org/. 

Our work aims to solve niche areas where not much research or private endeavors exist. Some of our past projects have been in: assisting children and parents with managing rare genetic cancer predispositions, patient education for new onset Type 1 Diabetes, Audio Diary research tools, a tool to help clinicians and public health officials tackle Tuberculosis in Georgia, and many more!

This is a hybrid position and requires some onsite presence on Georgia Tech's Atlanta campus depending on responsibilities assigned and deadlines.
