Our Approach

ADJUST Center Process Approach

Accessibility and Affordability

The ADJUST Center has a two-pronged approach to successfully accelerating diagnostic development and ensuring health equity and justice: our Thinktank and Technology Foundry, both putting increased accessibility and affordability at the top of everything we do.

Working alongside our partners at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Georgia Institute of Technology, we understand every project has different needs. Contact us today, and we will help you and your team move along.
