RESEARCH
Emory Antibiotic Resistance Center: Battling 'super-bugs' to save a medical miracle

As voters nationwide try to make sense of the 2016 presidential election, Emory College faculty are teaching courses to help students understand the history and context of current political battles.

 

ACHIEVEMENT

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation has awarded the Task Force for Global Health with the Hilton Humanitarian Prize, which includes $2 million in funding. An affiliate of Emory, the Task Force is a pioneer in global health and currently reaches hundreds of millions of people in 151 countries.

 

PERSPECTIVES

THEOLOGY
