Faculty from Georgia Tech and Emory, in partnership with Emory Brain Health, have developed a ground-breaking new program that combines therapeutics, technology, data science and the built environment to improve the lives of people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). This Cognitive Empowerment Program (CEP) is structured as a living laboratory that will engage those experiencing MCI as fellows of the program, such that they are active participants in defining the problem space, identifying the priorities and developing innovative solutions. This novel program will enable people with MCI to retain independence and joy.


Any research projects that don't have a permanent lab affiliation with GVU and are participating in the GVU Center Research Showcase will display their projects here. These projects are by researchers who are partnering with GVU to showcase their work in people-centered computing or using computing technology to solve scientific, social and technical challenges.

Faculty can request at any time to have their lab listed on the GVU website by emailing
