    The Georgia Health Science University (GHSU) Business Development Center is a business incubator that encourages, nurtures and fosters entrepreneurial enterprises related to biomedical science. The center is managed by the Georgia Department of Economic Development's Center of Innovation for Life Sciences and hosted by the Georgia Health Science University. Gov. Sonny Perdue launched the Center of Innovation for Life Sciences in 2003 with funding from OneGeorgia Authority. The center, centrally located on MCG's main campus in Augusta, Georgia, has approximately 1,600 square feet of space that can house up to five entrepreneurial businesses in the life sciences (bioinformatics, genomics, medical devices, diagnostics, etc.). Each unit includes a large wet lab, a separate clean room or culture room and two offices. Each room includes benches, sinks, desks, tables, chairs, storage shelves and file cabinets.
