HEALTH
Cast your vote to help Emory research advance in #STATMadness
Vote for Emory in STAT Madness, the bracket competition for biomedical research. Emory's 2019 entry covering a sepsis prediction technology beat Vanderbilt in the first round and is now up against a project from the University of Virginia; second-round voting ends tonight.

RESEARCH
From Stone Age chips to microchips: How tiny tools made us human
Anthropologists have long made the case that tool-making is one of the key behaviors that separated our human ancestors from other primates. A new paper by an Emory anthropologist, however, argues that it was not tool-making that set hominins apart — it was the miniaturization of tools.
