Philanthropy in Action

When the university’s Rising to the Challenge campaign concluded in October, the Whiting School had raised a record-breaking $292.6 million. Here’s how philanthropy has provided our faculty and students with the opportunities and resources they need to flourish, achieve, and make a difference.

Averting Deadly Arrhythmias

Arrhythmias linked to sudden cardiac death are very rare, making it difficult to study how they occur—and how they might be prevented. To make it much easier to discover what triggers this deadly disorder Johns Hopkins scientists constructed a powerful new computer model that replicates the biological activity within the heart that precedes sudden cardiac death.

The Heart as Art

Farhad Pashakhanloo, PhD ’16, spent more than 60 hours creating an image of a human heart, which has been chosen to grace the cover of Nature Reviews Cardiology every month for the next year.

Defining the ‘Gold Standard’

A team of Johns Hopkins computational scientists and cancer experts devised its own bioinformatics software to evaluate how well current strategies identify cancer-promoting mutations and distinguish them from benign mutations in cancer cells.
