10/7: The William B. Kouwenhoven Memorial Lecture Presents Milan Sonka
The William B. Kouowenhoven Memorial Lecture will be presented at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 7 in Hodson Hall 110 Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus. A reception in the lobby will follow.
Milan Sonka, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and Research of the College of Engineering at the University of Iowa, will speak on “Relating Retinal Anatomy, Pathology, Function, and Therapy Guidance: Analysis of Opthalmic 3D OCT.”
The annual Kouwenhoven lecture is presented by the Whiting School of Engineering and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
10/14: Hai-Quan Mao to Deliver Inaugural Professorial Lecture
Hai-Quan Mao, professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will deliver his Inaugural Professorial Lecture, “Designer Materials for Tissue and Therapeutic Engineering,” from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 14 in Gilman 50. A reception follows the lecture.
Mao will discuss how new materials with tailored structural and functional characteristics can advance the ways that medical treatments are delivered to combat diseases and repair damaged tissue.
The lecture is part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture series, which started in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors.
10/21: SPUR Information Session and Kick-Off
Learn about opportunities offered through WSE/APL’s 2015 Summer Program in Undergraduate Research at an information session and kick-off event set for 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21 in the Glass Pavilion. Register for the event today.
This exciting new partnership, which was launched in the summer of 2014, enables highly-qualified rising sophomores, juniors and seniors to work as paid summer interns at Johns Hopkins’ Applied Physics Laboratory. The first cohort of SPUR scholars worked on projects that included ballistic missile systems, prosthetics, computer vision, and secure mobile communications.
Dean Ed Schlesinger of the Whiting School of Engineering and Ralph Semmel, director of the Applied Physics Laboratory, will speak at the October information session. In addition, some of the 2014 SPUR students will be on hand to discuss their experiences.
“APL is a unique national asset dedicated to solving critical problems,” said Ed Schlesinger, Benjamin T. Rome Dean of the Whiting School of Engineering. “It’s one of the premiere engineering research organizations in the world, and the engineering science there is done at an incredible level, unique in the world. So having the opportunity to take on internships at this place and with these people is very special.”
In addition to the opportunity to work closely with APL mentors on a wide variety of projects, interns will also have access to enrichment and social activities. Free shuttle service between the Homewood campus and APL also is provided.

11/6: Tza-Huei “Jeff” Wang’s IPL on “Discerning Rare Disease Biomarkers by Micro- and Nanotechnologies”
Tza-Huei “Jeff” Wang, a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, will deliver his Inaugural Professorial Lecture, “Discerning Rare Disease Biomarkers by Micro- and Nanotechnologies,” from 3 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 6 in Hodson Hall 210. A reception will follow.
Wang will discuss how microfluidics, nanoparticles and single molecule spectroscopy hold great promise for advancing the molecular analysis of diseases.
The lecture is part of the Fall 2014 Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series, a tradition that began in 1993 to honor newly promoted full professors. The originator of the series, Giddens was the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
The Whiting School of Engineering is currently searching for qualified candidates to fill several positions. Learn More
