Major research university, especially in medicine.

Emory University is a private research university in Atlanta, Georgia.[1] Founded in 1836 as "Emory College" by the Methodist Episcopal Church and named in honor of Methodist bishop John Emory,[2] Emory is the second-oldest private institution of higher education in Georgia.[3]

Emory Healthcare is the largest healthcare system in the state of Georgia[4] and comprises seven major hospitals, including the Emory University Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown.[5] The university operates the Winship Cancer Institute, Yerkes National Primate Research Center, and many disease and vaccine research centers.[6] Emory University is the leading coordinator of the U.S. Health Department's National Ebola Training and Education Center.[7] The university is one of four institutions involved in the NIAID's Tuberculosis Research Units Program.[8] The International Association of National Public Health Institutes is headquartered at the university[9] and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cancer Society are national affiliate institutions located adjacent to the campus.[10] The university is partnered with the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Carter Center.[11]

Emory faculty and alumni include 2 Prime Ministers, 9 university presidents, 11 members of the United States Congress, 2 Nobel Peace Prize laureates, a Vice President of the United States, a United States Speaker of the House, and a United States Supreme Court Justice. Other notable alumni include 19 Rhodes Scholars, 6 Pulitzer Prize winners, Emmy Award winners, MacArthur Fellows, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, heads of state and other leaders in foreign government, academics, musicians, and an Olympic medalist.[12] Emory has more than 149,000 alumni, with 75 alumni clubs established worldwide in 20 countries.[13]

In 2020, the university helped develop the drug Molnupiravir.

Woke

In 2018, Law Professor Paul J. Zwier II said the word "negro" when discussing a 1967 court case about a hotel buffet employee who took a plate away from a black customer and said a “Negro could not be served.”[14]

After student outcry against the incident, University administrators quickly condemned Zwier’s use of the term and initiated an investigation by the Office of Equity and Inclusion. Zwier apologized to the class for using the word the next day, and said he should have said “the ‘N-word’” instead of saying it in full. Zwier's classes were re-assigned to another instructor pending the investigation results. Zwier said he will attend a planned “unity rally” to demonstrate “support for a cohesive and mutually respectful Emory Law.”

Wrenica Archibald, President of the Black Law Students Association walk-in during the class session in which Zwier apologized for his use of the racial slur, said she found Zwier’s apology unclear. "I remain uncertain of what type of message his apology truly sent."

School of Medicine

The psychiatrist Charles Nemeroff joined the Emory University School of Medicine in 1991. During his time at Emory, he built the psychiatry department into one of the field's leading centers and was considered one of the nation's most influential psychiatrists, having written more than 850 research reports and reviews. At the same time, Nemeroff accepted large consulting fees from drug companies whose products he has reviewed.[15][16]

In 2008, he resigned from the position of chairman after Emory University found him in violation of policy for not disclosing payments received from drug makers for consulting fees.[17] He was forbidden to apply for or be involved with any National Institutes of Health grants for a period of two years[18]. In 2009, Nemeroff became the chair of psychiatry at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.[19] In 2018, Nemeroff became chair and professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School.[20]
