In the 1915 with the help of Asa Chandler founder of the Coca Cola Company Emory University expanded its presence in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Since this time Emory University has flourished with funds from its endowments, a large grant funding base and active alumni association. Emory University has an expansive medical center for teaching, research and patient care. The undergraduate and graduate schools have a student body in excess of 12,000 students. Emory University is comprised of nine schools including law, medicine, public health, nursing and noteworthy Oxford College. Emory University is a proximate neighbor of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Heart Association. The graduate school has degree programs in 26 divisions Emory's 2012 graduating class will be comprised of 43-percent students who identify with one or more minority groups. Emory welcomes students of every religious faith. Emory University is reported to have undergone a name change in 2008 to College of Arts & Sciences. U.S. News and World Report rank Emory University in the 100 Universities in the USA.

New DNA origami motor breaks speed record for nano machines

Through a technique known as DNA origami, scientists have created the fastest, most persistent DNA nano motor yet. Angewandte Chemie published the findings, which provide a blueprint for how to optimize the design of motors ...

New synthesis methods enhance 3-D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis—carbon-hydrogen functionalization—scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their ...

Physics of giant bubbles bursts secret of fluid mechanics

A study inspired by street performers making gigantic soap bubbles led to a discovery in fluid mechanics: Mixing different molecular sizes of polymers within a solution increases the ability of a thin film to stretch without ...

'Bilingual' molecule connects two basic codes for life

The nucleic acids of DNA encode genetic information, while the amino acids of proteins contain the code to turn that information into structures and functions. Together, they provide the two fundamental codes underlying all ...

Study gets to root of rice's resilience to floods

Climate change is increasing both the severity and frequency of extreme weather events, including floods. That's a problem for many farmers, since rice is the only major food crop that's resilient to flooding. A new study, ...

DNA 'origami' takes flight in emerging field of nano machines

Just as the steam engine set the stage for the Industrial Revolution, and micro transistors sparked the digital age, nanoscale devices made from DNA are opening up a new era in bio-medical research and materials science.

'Yank': A new term in biophysics

Biologists and biomedical engineers are proposing to define the term "yank" for changes in force over time, something that our muscles and nerves can feel and respond to.
