Research at Georgia Tech

New Frontiers Beckon Math and Biology in Multimillion Dollar NSF-Simons Project

If physics were to hand the other sciences the best arrow in its quiver, that arrow would probably be mathematics. A new national project, which includes the Georgia Institute of Technology, aims to convey the benefits of physics’ age-old intertwining with math upon biology, a science historically less connected with it.

Research at Georgia Tech

Advancing at the Intersection

Important discoveries often take place at the intersection of disciplines. Georgia Tech's research enterprise encourages the kinds of multidisciplinary collaboration that makes these advances possible.

We've broken down the barriers between our schools, colleges and interdisciplinary research organizations to provide federal agencies, companies, and philanthropic organizations the results they need from research investments.




Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities in the volume of research conducted, and and in 2016, we conducted $791 million in research. But addressing critical research challenges isn’t enough. We’re also moving these solutions out into the world through commercialization and technology transfer, creating an innovation ecosystem to benefit stakeholders ranging from students to startup companies.

Executive Director for the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM)

The Georgia Institute of Technology is conducting an internal search for an Executive Director for the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM). IRIM, one of Georgia Tech's Interdisciplinary Research Institutes (IRIs), brings together robotics researchers from across campus—spanning colleges/schools, Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), the Enterprise Innovation Institute (EI2), and individual faculty-led centers, labs, and groups—to create new collaborative opportunities for faculty, strengthen partnerships with industry and government, and maximize the societal impact of the transformative robotics research conducted at Georgia Tech.
