EDUCATION
Classes that click: a semester to remember
Staying focused on academics amidst the COVID-19 pandemic brought lessons during class times and beyond. As Emory moves into remote learning for summer courses, students and faculty reflect on what they learned this spring.

 

RESEARCH
Emory announces plan for resumption of research
Beginning immediately, Emory will commence a multi-phased plan to gradually return to campus for research. A robust practice of health monitoring and testing will be combined with public health guidance for mitigating risk.

ARTS
Concert Choir shares one more song to end the semester
Although the Emory Concert Choir hasn’t rehearsed since before spring break, the members wanted to make music together one more time. The result was a virtual performance of “Beautiful River,” with the students singing from their homes across the country and around the world.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Solar power agreement will help Emory reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Emory will install more than 15,000 solar panels across 16 buildings on its Druid Hills campus, which will generate approximately 10 percent of the university’s peak energy requirements and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4,300 metric tons.

SOLUTIONS
Emory, Georgia Tech students tackle COVID-19 problems in virtual hackathon
More than 100 student teams competed to hack pandemic problems. Among the winners: Emory student Alexandra Tuttle and her sister McKenzie, a student at Georgia Tech, and their teammates proposed an app to help businesses operate under COVID-19.

COVID-19 NEWS
 

 

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
Emory to study efficacy of remdesivir and baricitinib against COVID-19
Emory and Eli Lilly have gained NIAID approval to study the safety and efficacy of using the anti-inflammatory drug baricitinib with remdesivir to treat patients hospitalized with COVID-19.

 

COLLABORATION
Emory and Georgia Tech create COVID-19 barrier protection devices
Emory physicians and Georgia Tech engineers teamed up to create barrier protection devices designed to contain respiratory droplets while breathing tubes are inserted, with a goal of reducing risks for medical staff.

 

CREATIVITY
Children's book contest winners address facts, emotions of pandemic
Through engaging stories with charming illustrations, winners of the Emory Global Health Institute’s e-book competition help kids ages 6-9 understand the COVID-19 pandemic.
