SCHOLARSHIP
Student researchers craft 'Resisting Racism' exhibit
American Studies students used primary source materials in the Rose Library to create a new exhibit, "Resisting Racism: From Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter," on display in the library until August.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Student projects honored during Undergraduate Research Week
As Emory celebrates Undergraduate Research Week, meet the winners of the Woodruff Library Undergraduate Research Awards and learn when you can see student researchers present their projects.

 

HONORS
Four Emory faculty named to American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Professors Sander Gilman, Kevin Young, Carol Newsom and Melvin Konner are among the world's most accomplished scholars, scientists, writers, artists and other leaders who have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

 

EVENTS
Theater Emory hosts 12-hour Shakespeare Anniversary Celebration
Emory marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death with a full slate of events on Saturday, beginning with a battle scene at noon and ending with a ritual and toast at midnight.

 

LEARNING
From the field to the Emory Herbarium: How knowledge of nature blooms
Six Emory students recently traveled to rural South Florida to look for plants used in indigenous medicine and collect specimens for the Emory Herbarium, under the guidance of medical ethnobotanist Cassandra Quave.

 

HEALTH
HIV prevention trial tests virus-blocking antibody
Despite years of research, there is no preventive vaccine for HIV. Led by Srilatha Edupuganti and Carlos del Rio, Emory is part of a clinical trial to provide people with one of the things a vaccine is supposed to stimulate -- antibodies that neutralize the virus -- with the aim of preventing infection.

 

BIOLOGY
Study on worm, mouse fertility could lead to 'the pill' for men
Research led by biology professor Steven L'Hernault establishes a connection between fertilization in nematodes and mammals. The conclusion provides new insights into the basic underpinnings of fertility that could eventually lead to oral contraceptives for men.

 

OUTREACH
Emory alumnus 'gives back' as an admissions counselor
As an Emory student, Joel Dobben earned highest honors in English, competed on the swim team and won a Bobby Jones Scholarship. As an admissions counselor, he now shares the benefits of an Emory education with prospective students.

PROFILE
Melanie Jacobson: Examining the effects of chemicals in consumer products
Melanie Jacobson, a PhD student in epidemiology, won this year's Three Minute Thesis Competition with her concise explanation of her research into the effects of environmental exposure to brominated flame retardants. Her research focuses on two vulnerable populations that have not been studied before: young children and reproductive-aged women.

Quote

 

"Doing mathematics can be a mental voyage to a place where clarity of thought and openness to insight make it possible to see the deeper beauty of a mathematical structure, to enter a world where triumph over a problem depends less on conscious effort than on confidence, creativity, determination and intellectual rigor."
Ken Ono, Scientific American, April 13, 2016
