SPECIAL FEATURE
Moving the needle
A national opioid epidemic is driving people from pills to heroin, filling emergency rooms with overdose cases and killing tens of thousands of Americans every year. What are we doing about it?

 

TEACHING
Emory acquires rare 18th-century Piranesi books illustrating ancient Rome
Emory students and scholars can now access the complete rare folio set by Piranesi (1720-1778), who documented, imagined and recreated ancient Rome — buildings, maps, mausoleums, cemeteries, street scenes and more — through incredibly detailed etchings.

 

PUBLIC HEALTH
Dengue 'hot spots' provide map to chikungunya and Zika outbreaks
Identifying dengue fever "hot spots" can provide a predictive map for outbreaks of chikungunya and Zika — two other viral diseases that, along with dengue, are spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

 

MEDICINE
Study identifies a link between antidepressant treatment resistance and inflammation
Emory researchers have found that depressed patients who have not responded to multiple antidepressants exhibit evidence of increased inflammation.

 

RESEARCH
Physicists devise method to reveal how light affects materials
Emory physicists have developed a way to determine the electronic properties of thin gold films after they interact with light. Nature Communications published the new method, which may pave the way for improvements in devices such as optical sensors and photovoltaic cells.

ENGAGEMENT
Unraveling the intricacies of global connectivity
The challenges of global business go well beyond language barriers. Students in Emory's Goizueta Business School are exposed to global perspectives in every aspect of their coursework, including immersive experiences abroad.
