SUSTAINABILITY
Emory PATH construction begins
Construction begins this week on the latest leg of Emory's joint project with Atlanta's PATH Foundation: two new bicycle-pedestrian pathways that will help link the South Peachtree Creek PATH trail system to the heart of campus.

 

LEADERSHIP
Emory University names Mary Anne Bobinski dean of Emory Law
Mary Anne Bobinski has been named dean of Emory University School of Law. She will assume the post in August 2019, becoming the first woman to serve in the role since the law school's founding in 1916.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Six recent Emory College alumni awarded NSF Graduate Fellowships
Clara Perez and Katya Bobrek are among six recent Emory College graduates to earn the National Science Foundation's prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship, which supports high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers.

IMPACT
New Emory initiatives drive innovation in the basic sciences
Emory has provided $5 million each to two priority research initiatives: "Biological Discovery through Chemical Innovation" and "From Molecular Pathogenesis to Global Pandemics." This initial financial support is considered seed funding, with the teams aiming to generate additional external funding.

 

DISCOVERY
Civil War plant medicines blast drug-resistant bacteria
Studying a guide to plant remedies commissioned during the Civil War, Emory researcher Cassandra Quave finds that three plants have antimicrobial activity against dangerous species of drug-resistant bacteria associated with wound infections.

 

HONORS
Udall Scholar combines environmental sustainability research with action
Emory College student Katelyn Boisvert has been named a 2019 Udall Scholar for her dedication to sustainability and finding practical solutions to environmental concerns. She is Emory's third Udall winner in three years.

COMMUNITY
Bringing art and inspiration to Atlanta students
Emory takes a groundbreaking African American art exhibit out of the library and into a busy Atlanta public school, inspiring students to embrace their own creativity.
