SPOTLIGHT
Celebrating math, miracles and a movie
An advance screening of "The Man Who Knew Infinity" at The Carter Center was a chance to celebrate Emory's connection to the film -- Ken Ono, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Math, served as an associate producer and the math consultant. Focused on the life of Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, who said his math formulas came to him as visions from a Hindu goddess, the film opens nationwide April 29. Learn more and see the trailer.

 

LEADERSHIP

OUTREACH
Emory Muslim students send message of love to victims of terrorist attacks
In a heartfelt video created by Emory College students Reem al-Atassi and Mashal Mirza, diverse Muslim students offer prayers of compassion and support to victims of terrorist attacks around the world.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Emory wins prestigious 2016 US Water Prize for WaterHub
The WaterHub, Emory's on-site, eco-engineered water reclamation system, was lauded by the U.S. Water Alliance for "showing us what is possible when major anchor institutions like universities invest in water reuse."

 

RESEARCH
Elevated troponin linked to mental stress ischemia in heart disease patients
Some people with heart disease experience a restriction of blood flow to the heart, called ischemia, in response to psychological stress. A study by Emory cardiologists shows they tend to have higher levels of troponin, a marker of recent stress or damage to the heart muscle.

Quote

 

"There is nothing wrong with the recognition that we are apes -- smart ones perhaps, but apes nonetheless. ... We are endowed with the mental powers and imagination to get under the skin of other species. The more we succeed, the more we will realize that we are not the only intelligent life on earth."
Frans de Waal, New York Times, April 8, 2016
