CAMPUS
Emory working to improve pedestrian and e-scooter safety

ACHIEVEMENT
Recent alum is Emory's first winner of prestigious scholarship to study for two years in France

ARTS

Visitors to the Carlos Museum can watch conservators as they work to restore the "Cosmic Man" this month. Learn more about the treatment process at a special program on Thursday, Sept. 19.

CONNECTIONS
Emory hosts Tara Westover, best-selling author of 'Educated,' in lead-off event for Common Read
This year's Common Read program kicks off Sept. 26 with best-selling author Tara Westover discussing "Educated," her memoir of her quest for knowledge after growing up with survivalist parents and not setting foot in a classroom until age 17.

 

RESEARCH
Chameleons inspire 'smart skin' that changes color in sun
While a chameleon can alter the color of its skin, scientists have struggled to make a photonic crystal "smart skin" that changes color in response to the environment without also changing in size. Emory chemists might have found a solution to the problem, documented in a new study.
