Dedication: Center for Molecular Medicine

The University of Georgia announced the creation of its Center for Molecular Medicine in fall 2012 with Stephen Dalton, PhD, as its founding director. It broke ground on a new state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility in December 2015, and a move-in date is scheduled for August 2017. The building’s dedication will be held Sept. 20, 2017, to be followed by a two-day symposium to mark the Center’s opening.
