Date:6/27/2011

ATLANTA, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Metro Atlanta is building its reputation as a bioscience center with the recent partnership announcement of Emory University and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, two Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) board members, opening a $90 million pediatric research facility.

"Atlanta has a thriving bioscience community, and this pediatric research facility will lead to continued medical advances that will benefit patients not just in Georgia, but throughout the world," said Sam A. Williams, president of MAC. "Metro Atlanta's strength in bioscience comes from a strong pool of talent to universities and clinical research to entrepreneurship, which forms an ideal environment for the growth of the bioscience industry."

In addition to a number of pediatric focus areas, the new 200,000-square-foot building on the Emory campus will include research in adult cancer, immunology and drug discovery.

Being centrally located in the heart of Georgia's Innovation Crescent will be a huge asset to the many companies who are working in this field of research.

The Innovation Crescent is both a geographic area and a coalition of more than a dozen counties and entities focused on life sciences and economic development in the state of Georgia.

"The longstanding partnership between Emory University and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta combines the considerable strengths of two top-tier Georgia institutions," says James Wagner, President of Emory University. "We expect our new Health Sciences Research Building, with its focus on pediatrics, will help boost Emory and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta into the leading ranks of pediatric research programs, all for the benefit of children's health in Georgia and throughout the world."

"We are excited for the chance to further develop a robust pediatric research program," said Donna Hyland, President and CEO, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  "Atlanta is blessed wit
