IMPACT
Building a framework for ethics in global health research
Biomedical and public health research seeks to solve some of the world's most pressing problems, but failing to understand the social and political context can sink even the most well-intentioned study. James Lavery, the inaugural Hilton Chair in Global Health Ethics, aims to establish Emory as a world leader in the fast-emerging field.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Emory sophomore Lucy Wainger's poem selected for 'The Best American Poetry' anthology
Lucy Wainger's poem "Scheherazade" was selected to appear in the 2017 edition of "The Best American Poetry" alongside work from Joyce Carol Oates, Leonard Cohen, Sharon Olds and Robert Pinsky.

 

BUSINESS
Goizueta professors predict long recovery from Equifax breach
While the initial shock of a tremendously personal data breach of Equifax has subsided, two Goizueta Business School professors have said the fallout could go on for years, or even a decade.

 

RESEARCH
Mysterious DNA modification seen in stress response
Emory geneticists have been studying a modification of DNA that is not well understood in animals: methylation of the DNA letter A (adenine). It appears more in the mouse brain under conditions of stress and may have a role in neuropsychiatric disorders.

 

OUTREACH
Emory students' nonprofit helps kids' interest in science bloom
Founded and run by Emory College students, Georgia Blossom is a nonprofit organization focused on making and delivering flower-press kits to local elementary school students.

 

THEOLOGY
Winner to speak at Candler School of Theology's annual Women's Forum
Author, priest and professor Lauren Winner will discuss "Cardigan Sweaters, Magnolia Trees and Brioche: Overlooked Biblical Metaphors for God" on Nov. 2 in the Cannon Chapel sanctuary.

CAMPUS
