    GameChanger: Compensating for a faulty gene

    An Emory-led international team identified the gene mutation responsible for fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited form of intellectual disability. Emory scientists next developed a diagnostic test for fragile X and then identified compounds for possible treatment that are now in clinical trials.

    GameChangers: Completing the transplant miracle

    Emory scientists were leaders in developing a new class of immunosuppressive drugs with fewer side effects and are working toward eliminating the need for such drugs altogether.

    GameChangers: Keeping AIDS at bay

    Emory scientists developed drugs that are taken by the vast majority of people in treatment for HIV/AIDS, including more than 90% of those in the United States.

    GameChanger: Targeting and tuning depression circuits

    Emory scientists are advancing use of deep-brain stimulation for treatment-resistance depression and are searching for imaging biomarkers to define patients most likely to benefit from the new treatment.

    GameChanger: Treating brain injury

    An Emory neuroscientist pioneered use of progesterone for traumatic brain injury (TBI), currently in clinical trials. If effective, this will be the first effective TBI treatment in 40 years.

    GameChanger: A new field of genetics

    A former Emory scientist helped identify the role of mitochondrial DNA in health and disease, using this understanding to develop better diagnostics and therapies for mitochondrial dysfunction.

    GameChanger: Balloons to restore blood flow

    Andreas Gruentzig began a revolution in treating heart disease when he developed a balloon catheter that could be used to perform angioplasty in coronary arteries.

    GameChanger: A new target for Parkinson's

    Emory neurologists pioneered brain mapping to guide surgical inactivation of brain cells that misfire in movement disorders such as Parkinson's.
