Robert Schneider

Apples in Stereo’s Robert Schneider gave up a flourishing music career to chase his true passion: Math

Robert Schneider was the lead singer for his band, Apples in Stereo, and cofounder of Elephant 6 Recording Co., the Athens-based creative force behind the band Neutral Milk Hotel.

Emory Civil Rights Movement

Emory students tackle unsolved, unpunished killings from the Civil Rights Movement—and draw parallels to today

Hank Klibanoff’s students are talking about running. Specifically, why an innocent black teenager would run from white cops in Macon in 1962.

Cassie Mitchell

For Paralympian Cassie Mitchell, there are no limits

A research faculty member at Georgia Tech and Emory, Mitchell's life is a study in adaptation.

The Fuqua Center for Late-Life Depression

In Georgia one in five adults suffer from some kind of mental illness, and the rate is higher in adults over age 60. “When people get older, they fall off the map in terms of mental health services,” says Dr. William McDonald, a geriatric psychiatrist who heads the Fuqua Center.

Dr. Monica Parker

Science shows that people of color are nearly twice as likely as their Caucasian counterparts to develop some form of dementia. And yet African Americans are consistently under-represented in Alzheimer’s studies.
