RESEARCH
Dads show gender biases in brain responses, behaviors toward toddlers
A toddler's gender influences the brain responses as well as the behavior of fathers -- from how attentive they are to their child, to the types of language that they use and the play that they engage in, Emory neuroscientist Jennifer Mascaro finds.

 

HONORS
Emory chemist garners international honor for lifetime achievement
Huw Davies, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Chemistry, received the Humboldt Research Award for his work on organic synthesis, particularly C-H functionalization, which could lead to a paradigm shift in how pharmaceuticals and other chemicals are made.

 

COLLABORATION
Georgia Climate Project creates state 'climate research roadmap'
Climate experts and scientists from across the state gathered at Emory last week to identify top research questions that could help Georgia understand and address climate change.

 

COMMUNITY
AV200 raises hope for the future of vaccine research
When Action Cycling Atlanta set out to ride 200 miles to raise funds for Emory's AIDS vaccine research, among the cyclists was Joshua Saunders, who underwent quadruple bypass surgery at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital just six months ago.

 

DISCOVERY
Flamingo research shows birds use one-legged stance to relax
New insight into flamingo posture could be applied to neurological or balance problems, better robotics, orthopedic braces or artificial limbs, as well as provide clarity to a long-standing biological question.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Emory students chosen for Humanity in Action Fellowship
Jalyn Radziminski-Smith and Virginia Spinks will spend the next month immersed in the study of human and civil rights when they join a global network of students in Europe for the 2017 Humanity in Action Fellowship Program.

 

SPORTS
Emory men's tennis team wins NCAA Division III Championship
It's been a banner season for Emory tennis: The varsity men's team won its fourth NCAA title, the varsity women's team placed second in the NCAA, and the Oxford College men's team notched its third-consecutive NJCAA championship.

IMPACT
Nurturing young scientists to increase diversity in STEM fields
Aimed at undergraduates and new graduate students, the Emory Initiative to Maximize Student Development seeks to diversify the STEM workforce through mentoring, seminars and career coaching.
