Community Engagement Research Program (CERP)

A core component of the Atlanta Clinical Translational Science Institute

A collaborative effort of Emory University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).

Aims to support community-university research partnerships, to facilitate community input into university research, and to build community capacity to conduct health research that is both responsive and relevant to the health needs of the community.
