The Center for Obesity Reversal has facilities in the Science Annex building at Georgia State University. The center uses state-of-the art equipment, including the minispec LF90 TD-NMR Body Composition Analyzer, which provides researchers with a precise measurement of lean tissue, fat and fluid in small live animals. It offers rapid analysis in less than two minutes, allows more frequent testing and makes studies economical.
Its location in downtown Atlanta provides additional benefits for the center and the researchers. Atlanta is home to the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Georgia, researchers have access to several medical schools in Atlanta and across the state and a network of nearly 200 hospitals, which could be potential collaborators. In addition, the state of Georgia has a booming life sciences industry, which has an annual economic impact of $16.7 billion.
