RESEARCH
Emory Antibiotic Resistance Center: Battling 'super-bugs' to save a medical miracle

ENGAGEMENT

Nearly 200 college students from as far away as Afghanistan visit Emory this weekend to take up one of the world's greatest health threats: antimicrobial resistance. Drawing on Emory's strengths in the field, the conference helps students focus on international public health issues.
