HEALTH
Surviving the unsurvivable
Sylvia Ennis was driving to work at Emory when a falling tree pinned her in her car. The Association of American Medical Colleges just honored her riveting tale of survival as the best medical story of the year. Take a look back at her odyssey.

 

INNOVATION
Using the stairs just got easier with energy-recycling steps
Researchers at Emory and Georgia Tech have created a device that makes walking up and down stairs easier: energy-recycling stairs that store a user's energy during descent and return energy to the user during ascent.

 

INTERNATIONAL
Global Connections trip explores protest, reform
For students in Emory's Oxford College, a summer trip to explore modern issues of religious protest and reform was inspired by a 500-year-old event.

 

ECOLOGY
Mutant mosquitos make insecticide-resistance monitoring key to controlling Zika
A study led by Emory researchers finds that one of the most common insecticides has no measurable impact when applied in communities where the mosquito has built up resistance to it.

 

EVENTS
10 things to do for $10 or less
From exploring Emory's outdoor art to catching campus exhibits before they close, take advantage of these inexpensive, entertaining amenities and events in August.

INSIGHT
PhD pipeline: Students advocate for academic science
