INSIGHT
Ready for the big game
How will hosting the Super Bowl impact Atlanta? What defines a fan? Who takes care of Atlanta's pro athletes? And why doesn't Emory have a football team, anyway? Get ready for game day with insights from Emory faculty, physicians and alumni on these questions and many more.

 

COMMUNITY
Emory's 'All In a Day' online giving challenge returns Feb. 6-7
In a nod to Emory's founding in 1836, "All In a Day" starts at noon Feb. 6 and runs through 6:36 p.m. Feb. 7, giving friends of the university 1,836 minutes to help fund scholarships, research, patient care and more.

 

HEALTH
Uncovering more options in cancer immunotherapy
If scientists want to boost immune cells' ability to kill cancer cells, vast libraries of potential drugs are available for screening. The Fu lab has developed a platform for sorting through them.

 

EVENTS
Vanessa Siddle Walker to lecture about black education, civil rights
Emory professor Vanessa Siddle Walker visits the Auburn Avenue Research Library Feb. 10 to discuss "The Lost Education of Horace Tate," her book exploring the hidden history of African American educators working to end school segregation.

 

INSIGHT
Philosophy professor's new book explores Brian Eno's 'Music for Airports'
Philosopher John T. Lysaker examines different ways of listening and how the ambient music created by pop and avant-garde leader Brian Eno provokes audiences "to think about the act of listening itself."

CAMPUS
Convocation Hall opens on Emory's main quadrangle
Originally constructed more than 100 years ago, one of the first buildings on Emory's Atlanta campus is now open after an extensive renovation, ready to again serve as a hub for community, leadership and scholarship. An open house is slated for Feb. 7.
