Eleven distinguished researchers will join the faculty of Georgia State this fall as part of the university’s Second Century Initiative (2CI) which supports emerging fields of study from bioinformatics to the future of cities.

The Second Century Initiative is expected to bring in more than 100 new professors by 2015, enhancing Georgia State’s strategic efforts to increase the university’s level of competitive, federally funded studies and its overall recognition for excellence in research.

Since 2010, the university has annually awarded proposals for high impact research to senior, tenured faculty leaders with the proven ability to build collaborative, interdisciplinary research clusters. The fourth round of awarded proposals include Translation Immunology (PI-Jian Dong Li), Big Data Analytics (PI-Richard D. Phillips), Integrating Geographic Information Science (PI-Timothy Hawthorne), and Mathematical and Computational Modeling of Diseases (PI-Yi Jiang).
