The Georgia Research Alliance was featured in February 2013 edition of Research Advocate, the monthly newsletter of Research!America.  In the article, GRA president Mike Cassidy describes GRA’s unique role as an economic development organization, building university R&D capacitiy and “shaping and seeding companies around the most promising discoveries.”  The article also notes that the ROI on the state’s $525 million investment in GRA’s programs over the last 22 years has been $2.6 billion.

Research!America is the nation’s largest not-for-profit public education and advocacy alliance working to make research to improve health a higher national priority. The organization works with  Congress and the administration to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Food and Drug Administration and National Science Foundation. Research!America also advocates for federal funding for global health research and a legislative and regulatory climate that stimulates growth in industry research and development.
