CAMPUS
Homecoming, Family Weekend converge with fun activities for all
Emory Homecoming is the week of Oct. 16, packed with activities and traditions for students and alumni. Highlights include "Emory Land" events inspired by Candy Land and other board games, Friday's Homecoming Ball and Saturday's Homecoming Parade and concert with the Plain White T's.

 

COMMUNITY
Campus forum to focus on civil discourse
"Engaging in Civil Discourse at Emory," a panel discussion showcasing strategies for engaging in conversations and finding common ground with people of opposing views, is set for Thursday, Oct. 19.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Trio in biostatistics: 'Role models for us all'
Long-lived collaborations in academia are rare, and female researchers in statistical and math sciences are far from commonplace. So this trio of scientific collaborators in Emory's Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics is a phenomenon for these very reasons.

 

INNOVATION
NSF awards Emory's Center for Selective C-H Functionalization $20 million
The National Science Foundation has awarded another $20 million to Emory's Center for Selective C-H Functionalization to fund the next phase of a global effort to revolutionize the field of organic synthesis.

 

RESEARCH
Navigating the uphill climb from discovery to drugstore
Established in 1985, Emory's Office of Technology Transfer has helped launch 36 pharmaceutical startup companies, and its licensees have developed 19 drugs approved by the FDA -- including one of the most commonly used HIV drugs in the world.

PROFILE
Emory alum reports from the front lines of Hurricane Irma
News footage showed him sopping wet, speaking over gale-force winds as Hurricane Irma neared the Florida coast. One of the youngest reporters in the Miami market, Ian Margol traces his current career back to Emory's liberal arts curriculum.
