Four Georgia research and health-care organizations will collaborate to launch a center to boost development and commercialization of next-generation medical devices and medical technology.

Billed as the first of its kind in the Southeast, the Global Center for Medical Innovation will include a comprehensive medical device prototyping center.

Gov. Sonny Perdue is expected to announce this venture at the 2009 BIO International Convention later Tuesday.

The center will be supported by Georgia Tech, Saint Joseph’s Translational Research Institute, Piedmont Healthcare and the Georgia Research Alliance. It will be adjacent to the Georgia Tech campus in Technology Enterprise Park.

“The convergence of the life sciences with engineering provides a unique opportunity to expand our technology in areas that will support the health care industry of the future,” Georgia Tech President G. P. ‘Bud’ Peterson said in a statement. “The Global Center for Medical Innovation will bring together in one location the key infrastructure needed to rapidly move new medical devices and new medical technologies to market.”
