SPECIAL FEATURE
When vision betrays: Cataracts, aging and creating art
Emeritus professor Sidney Perkowitz finds commonality with Impressionist masters when his vision begins to fail due to cataracts. Take an in-depth look at the surgical advances that help restore his clarity.

 

DISCOVERY
Physicists show how lifeless particles can become 'life-like' by switching behaviors
Emory physicists Justin Burton and Guram "Guga" Gogia show how a system of lifeless particles can become "life-like" by collectively switching back and forth between crystalline and fluid states -- even when the environment remains stable.

 

TEACHING
Evidence-focused seminars ask first-year students, 'How do you know?'
While almost all courses offered at Emory involve evidence, special evidence-focused seminars help first-year students learn to evaluate research, make informed decisions and become smart consumers of knowledge.

 

ENVIRONMENT
Mandatory state policies work best to curb power plant emissions, study finds
U.S. state policies aimed at mitigating power plant emissions vary widely in effectiveness, according to a new study by Emory researchers. Policies with mandatory compliance are associated with the largest reductions in power plant emissions.

COMMUNITY
