IN THE FIELD
Emory researchers explore ancient Sanctuary of the Great Gods
A devout religious cult. Secret initiation rites. Imposing marble monuments. Led by archaeologist Bonna Wescoat, an Emory team has become the world's leading experts on the mysterious sanctuary on the Greek island of Samothrace.

 

HEALTH
HIV prevention trial tests virus-blocking antibody
Despite years of research, there is no preventive vaccine for HIV. Led by Srilatha Edupuganti and Carlos del Rio, Emory is part of a clinical trial that will provide people with one of the things a vaccine is supposed to stimulate -- antibodies that neutralize the virus -- with the aim of preventing infection.

 

BIOLOGY
Study on worm, mice fertility could lead to 'the pill' for men
Research led by biology professor Steven L'Hernault establishes a connection between fertilization in nematodes and mammals. The conclusion provides new insights into the basic underpinnings of fertility that could eventually lead to oral contraceptives for men.

Quote

 

"Doing mathematics can be a mental voyage to a place where clarity of thought and openness to insight make it possible to see the deeper beauty of a mathematical structure, to enter a world where triumph over a problem depends less on conscious effort than on confidence, creativity, determination and intellectual rigor."
Ken Ono, Scientific American, April 13, 2016
