CREATIVITY
Emory community members share their 'Stories from the Pandemic'
Living through a pandemic affects people in many different ways. Read or listen to stories about dealing with COVID-19, or become part of Emory’s history by sharing your own experiences through the new “Stories from the Pandemic” website.

 

COMMUNITY
Emory announces guidelines for faculty and staff returning to campus
Learn about health and safety guidelines for faculty and staff returning to campus for research in June and July, as well as for those continuing critical research and other operations. No one should work on campus until notified by their unit to do so.

 

DISCOVERY
Antibody study sheds more light on COVID-19 immunity
New research from Emory indicates that nearly all people hospitalized with COVID-19 develop virus-neutralizing antibodies within six days of testing positive. The findings will be key in understanding protective immunity against SARS-CoV-2 and in vaccine development.

RESEARCH
Scientists identify chemicals in noxious weed that 'disarm' deadly bacteria
In a study led by Emory ethnobotanist Cassandra Quave, scientists have identified specific compounds from the Brazilian peppertree that reduce the virulence of antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria.

 

EDUCATION
Human health course explores incarceration, institutionalization
“Health behind locked doors” focuses on the physical and mental health concerns of people living in prisons, jails and disability-related institutions. During spring semester, Jennifer Sarrett adapted the course to include COVID-19.

 

RANKINGS
Emory named among best for excellence, equity and employability
Emory ranks among the top universities in the nation in the first annual QS World University Rankings: USA, designed to assess how well universities are responding to the social, intellectual and economic challenges of our time.

CAMPUS
