Georgia State to launch biomedical science center

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State University's president says the school plans to launch the Georgia State Institute for Biomedical Sciences in January.

President Mark Becker made the announcement Wednesday in his annual State of the University address. Key areas will include inflammation, immunity and infection, microbial pathogenesis, oncology, therapeutics and diagnostics.

He says the university is also planning to introduce a campus-wide entrepreneurship program to help students start their own companies.

Becker says the school also plans to create a large lawn in the center of campus by tearing down an 80-year-old building.

He says the lawn created on the current site of Kell Hall will be part of a green corridor included in the school's new campus master plan. He says it will be a gathering place for students, faculty and staff.
