The Georgia BioBusiness Center (GBBC) works with indigenous and recruited start-up bioscience companies with research and technology ties to the University of Georgia.
Conveniently located on UGA’s Athens campus, the GBBC enables start-ups to accelerate their early growth through access to space, state-of-the-art equipment and support services.
GBBC programs encourage the commercialization of UGA faculty, staff, and student discoveries in the fields of medicine, agriculture, bioinformatics and environmental science.
The academic competitiveness of UGA is enhanced by an increase in Industry/University collaboration and student research and employment opportunities.
The GBBC provides an economic stimulus to the Northeast Georgia region as companies provide jobs and solve unmet community needs by translating University research into products and services.
