NEW FACILITIES AND INTERFACING WITH EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE
The Marcus Center will consist of a diverse, multi-disciplinary group of faculty and staff working collaboratively with clinical and industrial partners across the nation. Individual faculty laboratories will serve as the tool/technology development space and new innovation space, while a new, uniquely designed, state-of-the-art GMP/GLP facility will serve as the primary clinical/industry interface and process-development/process-validation space to ensure GMP and clinical compatibility. This facility (currently under architectural planning) will be housed inside the Marcus Nanotechnology Building near the Life Sciences quadrangle on the Georgia Tech campus.
MC3M, in addition to its own equipment and instrumentation infrastructure, will leverage on the vast core facility resources available at Georgia Tech and partner/collaborating Institutes; especially the equipment, space, and expertise/intellectual resources available through the Institute for Bioengineering and Biosciences (IBB), the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI), the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM), Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI).
