Minds at Work

Emory researchers received $628 million in outside funding last year—the largest amount of research funding in Emory's history.

"Our research programs have continued to attract support because of demonstrated groundbreaking results and the promise of future discoveries with the potential to change the face of science and medicine," says David S. Stephens, vice president for research in the Woodruff Health Sciences Center.

In this issue of Emory Magazine, we proudly feature a few of those transformative discoveries and the scholars, scientists, and students who are creating a different future, here and now.
