I have never seen such overwhelming support between students or departments; in my first week working here I found myself both being offered help to move in to my apartment as well as traveling to the Medical Campus in order to begin talking about a project with the School of Public Health. There are so many opportunities easily available to help with my research since Johns Hopkins is so open to interdisciplinary collaborations, and I look forward to taking advantage of them!
