The College of Fellows honors those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering and medicine research, practice, or education.
Scientists manipulate nanomaterials to make them a million times thinner than a strand of hair—dramatically increasing their reactivity.
National Engineers Week competition challenges students, alumni, and community to use their noodles.
Rebecca Grusby and Theresa Chen will present their work at DREAMS, an annual event at Hopkins that celebrates undergraduate research.
University spent record $2.562B in fiscal year 2017, up 5.4 percent from FY16.
The list, compiled by ‘Forbes,’ recognizes young people who have become leaders in their fields.
The William H. Schwarz Professorship was endowed through the generosity of Dr. Ronald J. Whittier in honor of his friend and mentor, Professor William H. Schwarz ’51 ’55 ’57, who was both an alumnus and an outstanding faculty member in the Department of Chemical Engineering.
Sharon Gerecht, Director and core faculty member at INBT, Kent Gordon Croft Investment Management Faculty Scholar, and professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, was awarded funding by The Maryland Stem Cell Research Commissions for her project, “Swine Study of Patient-Specific Small-Diameter Tissue Engineered Vascular Grafts for Arterial Conduits.” Established by the governor […]
An interdepartmental team of Johns Hopkins engineers has received a $2 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to build and program tiny, soft robots. The robots are expected to respond autonomously to environmental and physiological cues, an important step toward building soft robots that could travel through human bodies or machines repairing infections or […]
Michael Tsapatsis, an expert in molecular sieve membrane, adsorbent and catalyst synthesis, and Efie Kokkoli, a targeted drug delivery specialist, joined the department in September.
A cell’s properties—the way it moves, its shape, its texture, and its stiffness—have an enormous impact on human development, the immune response, and the progression of cancer. But researchers studying those cell mechanics often wind up with different results from their colleagues’, leading to confusion and delaying potential breakthroughs in cancer treatment and immunotherapy.
Using a technique called micropatterning, scientists discover cellular tension and pressure are key factors in stem cell growth and behavior.
If you built the largest, most powerful computer currently feasible, it would have about the same number of transistors as there are synapses in the brain of a 3-year-old child. It would also be slightly larger than a tennis court, and consume 106 times the power needed by the preschooler’s brain. All of which means […]
