dc.description.abstract Historically Georgia Tech has had a rather narrow focus on engineering, science, and technology, but as the Institute moves into the twenty-first century, dissolving boundaries and new opportunities are increasing its breadth. Tech has stepped across the disciplinary boundaries that separate biology, chemistry, medicine, engineering, and computing to launch a broad array of healthcare initiatives, from nanomedicine to bioinformatics, from cancer diagnosis and treatment to prosthetic devices for those who have lost limbs. The Institute is also a leader at the intersection of computing with the liberal arts, gaining national and international attention for using videogames to explore real-life problems and approaching music composition from a creative technological perspective. As a global economy based on innovation takes shape, Georgia Tech has crossed national boundaries, developing strategic education and research platforms in Europe and Asia, and helping the state of Georgia expand its global economic connections. As Tech reaches across traditional boundaries and uses technology in creative ways to solve problems and improve the quality of life, the Institute is becoming increasingly well-rounded, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and global. Taken together, the achievements of the 2006-07 year illustrate Tech's emerging paradigm of the technological research university of the twenty-first century. en_US
