YEAR IN REVIEW
Emory's Best Photos of 2017
Every day, Emory photographers can be found from the classroom to the operating room, documenting the university's mission "to create, preserve, teach and apply knowledge in the service of humanity." View 12 of their best photos of the year.

 

TEACHING
Course puts moral issue on trial in unusual final project
Instead of a typical final paper, students taking the religion course "Nazi Medicine on Trial" held a tribunal on whether forced sterilization is immoral, judged by experts from Emory's Center for Ethics and Office of the General Counsel.

 

HEALTH CARE
Salty, sour, bitter, sweet success
After a diagnosis of tongue cancer, chef Scott Adair was told he'd need to have his tongue removed. After he sought a second opinion at Emory's Winship Cancer Institute, he was able to receive a treatment that saved his tongue and his career, although he lost his sense of taste for a year.

 

INSIGHT
Debating the ethics of head transplants
Led by Emory experts, the official journal of the International Neuroethics Society examines the ethical questions raised by the possibility of the world's first head transplant, planned to take place in China.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Energy competition, holiday turndown help reduce campus energy use
As Emory strives to meet ambitious goals for reducing energy use, find out the winners of the annual Campus Energy Competition and how you can help conserve during the Holiday Building Turndown.

ALUMNI
Emory grads poised for musical breakthrough as The Shadowboxers
