I used to think that we needed to get more young girls interested in science but I see now that that was never the problem. We are here, we love science. The problem is creating an environment where we are supported, recognized, and rewarded for our work.

Indeed Dooley is out and about!!!! Dr. Quave is faculty @EmoryMedicine & @EmoryCollege and curator of the @EmoryHerbarium #DooleysWeek

Presidents may come, presidents may go. Professors may come, professors may go. Students may come, students may go... but Dooley lives on forever. My class was canceled mid-lecture by a skeleton today! A unique #Emory tradition :)

Watched the movie “#Wonder” tonight with my family ... and I cried & snuffled the whole way through. There are just so many parallels there to my own childhood. Best line in film:”You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out”
