CREATIVITY
Concerts and conversations fill December with artful activities
Emory prepares to ring in the holidays and wrap up fall semester with numerous arts programs in December, including A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Friday, Dec. 3, and Saturday, Dec. 4.

 

HEALTH
What we know, and don't know, about the Omicron variant
Emory epidemiologists Carlos del Rio and Jodie Guest team up to answer questions about Omicron, a newly identified COVID-19 variant spreading rapidly in parts of the world.

 

INVOLVEMENT
Symposium celebrates graduate students' contributions to COVID-19 response
An Emory symposium highlighted the ways graduate students have been studying COVID-19 in the hospital and laboratory and modeling disease spread, along with staffing testing events, advising local communities and providing community service and education. 

 

RESEARCH
How grandmothers' brains react to the sight of their grandchildren
Research published by Emory anthropologists scanning grandmothers’ brains while they’re viewing photos of their young grandchildren provides a neural snapshot of the special, intergenerational bond.

INITIATIVE
Rollins student raises humanitarian assistance funds for at-risk Afghan youth
Shakila Ali’s family fled from Afghanistan to Pakistan after the Taliban first took over in 1998. They later moved to the U.S., but she hasn’t forgotten her homeland. Now the global health student is mobilizing others to support at-risk Afghan youth.

WORLD AIDS DAY 2021
 

 

IMPACT
Emory works to end HIV/AIDS pandemic through innovation, collaboration and mentorship
As we commemorate World AIDS Day, the Emory Center for AIDS Research has been instrumental in coordinating, supporting and mentoring HIV/AIDS researchers across Emory University and beyond for more than 20 years. Hosting Quilt on the Quad for many years was one way Emory honored lives lost and reflected on the road ahead.

 

COMMITMENT
Emory researchers pursue what was once unthinkable: an HIV cure
Forty years after the first official report about what came to be known as AIDS, enormous strides have been made in developing anti-HIV drugs and reducing new infections — but efforts to find a vaccine have been unsuccessful. Emory researchers are working to change that.

 

PARTNERSHIP
Emory and Gilead Sciences, Inc. are tackling the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the U.S. South
Emory, Gilead and partners are addressing disparities in health care and advancing health equity for those most disproportionately affected by HIV and AIDS in the U.S. South.
