SPORTS MEDICINE
Young athletes: Too much too soon?
Years of training, intense competition and focusing on one sport can create health problems for young athletes. What can be done to reduce the risks?

 

RESEARCH
Drug discovery: Alzheimer's and Parkinson's spurred by same enzyme
Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease affect different regions of the brain and have distinct genetic and environmental risk factors. But at the biochemical level, these two diseases start to look similar. That's how Emory scientists landed on a potential drug target for Parkinson's.

 

MENTORING
'Academic boot camp' supports undergraduate scholars on path to PhD
Through the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program, students from underrepresented minority groups gain mentoring and support to pursue careers in academia.

 

HEALTH
Emory helps a survivor survive even longer
At 92, Sol Kaslow is a surviving veteran of the 1944 Normandy invasion and still participating in World War II commemorations. It's a chance he wouldn't have had without a heart procedure performed at Emory Healthcare.

 

LEADERSHIP
New CDC director has Emory health connections
Brenda Fitzgerald, a graduate of Emory University School of Medicine as well as its residency training program, has been appointed director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

 

INSIGHT

In a recent talk on campus, Emory alumna Mary Gresham discusses the taboo topic of money and why we think about it the way we do.

CONSTRUCTION
