One year later, Emory looks back on 9/11: Last week came and went on the Emory campus with many of the same emotions that accompanied the week of Sept. 11, 2001. The University commemorated 9/11 with a series of activities that began on Monday with a blood drive and culminated in a public Gathering held the evening of Sept. 11 in Glenn Auditorium.

Tom Insel, professor of psychiatry and director of the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, has been appointed the new director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and is expected to begin his new position in November. Insel, former director of the Yerkes Primate Research Center, worked as a NIMH researcher for 15 years before coming to Emory in 1994.Insel is the second Emory medical professor this year to became a National Institutes of Health (NIH) director; in May, Rod Pettigrew became the first director of NIH’s National Institute of Bioima-ging and Biomedical Engineering. “It’s always a loss when you have to say goodbye to stellar faculty members,” said Michael Johns, executive vice president for health affairs. “On the other hand, one mark of a great university is that other people want to hire your stars.”
