ACHIEVEMENT
Health Care Heroes Awards honor physicians, nurses, innovators
The Atlanta Business Chronicle has selected Emory health sciences faculty and staff as winners or finalists in its annual Health Care Heroes Awards competition.

ENGAGEMENT
Measuring Emory's impact
In the classroom, in the lab, at a patient's bedside, or helping a remote community half a world away, Emory is about impact. Through a dynamic new digital interface, view Emory's Impact Report.

 

RESEARCH
Antibody responses continue evolving in Ebola survivors months after recovery
Antiviral antibodies produced by survivors of Ebola infection continue to evolve and improve after recovery, according to a detailed study of the immune responses of four people who received care at Emory University Hospital in 2014.

 

BREAKTHROUGH
Mathematicians revive abandoned approach to the Riemann Hypothesis
Many ways to approach the Riemann Hypothesis have been proposed during the past 150 years, but none have led to conquering the most famous open problem in mathematics. A new paper co-authored by Emory mathematician Ken Ono suggests that one of these old approaches is more practical than previously realized.

COMMUNITY
Bringing art and inspiration to Atlanta students
Emory takes a groundbreaking African American art exhibit out of the library and into a busy Atlanta public school, inspiring students to embrace their own creativity.
