Whitehead Building makes grand debut: The Whitehead Biomedical Research Building is Emory’s newest and, in many ways, most remarkable structure. Its 325,000 square feet of office and laboratory space utilizes the “open lab” concept, fostering collaborative efforts between researchers. Whitehead also is environmentally progressive, with equipment that reuses water and saves electricity. Natural light shines on 90 percent of Whitehead’s office space, cutting the need for artificial light. A ceremony dedicating the building was held April 2. Click here or above for the full story.

Emory alumnus William Cohen, ’64C, and his wife, Michele, have established a scholarship fund to benefit children of victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. The fund (tentatively titled the Cohen Sept. 11 Scholarship Fund) will provide students who lost a parent or guardian in the attacks with a full or partial scholarship to Emory, based on need. “We were very touched by Emory’s decision to help current students [after the attacks],” Cohen said. “We decided that we should reach out and make scholarships available to all the children affected by this tragedy.” The scholarship will become available to eligible students entering the University in 2003 and will be available only for 25 years, after which point any remaining funds will be distributed among Emory’s general, need-based scholarships.Photo by Jon Rou.
