INTERNATIONAL
Theology students visit Haiti to explore moral leadership
Graduate students in Candler School of Theology traveled to Haiti for a 10-day seminar in moral leadership led by professor and public theologian Robert Franklin, visiting with artists, academics, and spiritual and political leaders.

 

DISCOVERY
Emory researchers closer to cracking neural code of love
A team of Emory neuroscientists found a key connection between areas of the adult female prairie vole's brain reward system that promotes the emergence of pair bonds, a discovery that could help with efforts to improve social function in humans with disorders such as autism.

 

ARTS
'Epitaphs' exhibit to feature Billy Howard's photographs of people living with HIV/AIDS
Riveting images of people living with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s, taken by Atlanta-area photographer Billy Howard, are the basis of an exhibit at Emory's Robert W. Woodruff Library. A conversation with Howard is scheduled June 22 at 6:30 p.m.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Emory University initiatives support actions to address climate change
Emory joins with a consensus of scientists around the world in calling for immediate action and necessary policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and avoid the most damaging impacts to our planet.

LEADERSHIP
Emory University, largest employer in DeKalb County, serves as driving force for Atlanta region
Emory provides $9.1 billion in economic impact within the Atlanta region and Georgia, while supporting nearly 64,000 jobs and generating $200 million in state tax revenues, according to a new study.  

 

COMMUNITY
First-generation students find needed support in campus program
Launched in fall 2013, the 1915 Scholars Program provides a "family" support network for first-generation college students who might struggle in their transition from high school to college.

 

INNOVATION
Finding mental disorders with math
What if a brain scan could detect a mental disorder even before symptoms emerge? Or predict which depressed patients would respond to a particular medication and which would not? Emory's Ying Guo is working to transform such aspirations into reality using math.

 

RESEARCH
New allocation system reduces racial/ethnic disparities in kidney transplant for waitlisted patients
Emory researchers prove that a new kidney allocation system implemented by the United Network for Organ Sharing decreased disparities in national kidney transplant rates among whites, blacks and Hispanics on the transplant waitlist.

SPOTLIGHT
Emory shares in Georgia's movie industry boom
As Georgia rises to the third-busiest production location in the country, Emory alumni and Emory's Department of Film and Media Studies claim a piece of the action.
