UGA addresses the grand challenges of our time.
As a shrill vibrato tears through a high school, teenagers disperse for study halls and science class.
The well could eventually run dry. The water from a city main could stop flowing. As Georgia’s population keeps increasing—up more than 25 percent from 1990’s numbers—so does the demand for water.

The most comprehensive study of its kind has found that violence costs the United States $70 billion annually, a figure that rivals federal education spending and the damage caused by hurricane Katrina.
UGA scientists have teamed up with researchers at major universities, national laboratories and industry in a new $125 million federal bioenergy research center to achieve the scientific breakthroughs that will efficiently – and economically – convert plants into fuels.
Infectious diseases are literally a moving target, with their incidence waxing and waning over time and the pathogens themselves constantly mutating and evolving.
