LEADERSHIP
Emory Board of Trustees names Gregory L. Fenves as 21st president
Gregory L. Fenves, president of The University of Texas at Austin, has been elected as the 21st president of Emory University by a unanimous vote of Emory’s Board of Trustees. Fenves will assume office on Aug. 1.

 

ENVIRONMENT
Pandemic lockdowns set up 'natural experiment' on air pollution
COVID-19 lockdowns have slashed air pollution levels across the globe. Emory professor Eri Saikawa is asking her students to track current greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants to study how the novel coronavirus has impacted air quality and climate change.

RESEARCH
New antiviral drug discovered at Emory offers hope for COVID-19 treatment
Scientists are hopeful that a new drug called EIDD-2801 could change the way doctors treat COVID-19. The drug shows promise in reducing lung damage and has finished testing in mice. It will soon move to human clinical trials.

 

CAMPUS
