Urban Spaces in Baltimore: Data Science in the City Symposium
Aug 27 all-day

The Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science will host the inaugural Urban Spaces in Baltimore: Data Science in the City symposium at Johns Hopkins University on Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

This event aims to bring together academic researchers and city officials to create new opportunities for research projects that benefit both groups. This symposium will establish what makes a good research question and how city officials can best use research to advance their goals and initiatives, identify current projects in progress/discussion, and create opportunities for new collaborations, with the goal that attendees will leave the event with a starting point for a new project or collaboration.

Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Thao (Vicky) Nguyen
Sep 25 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Thao (Vicky) Nguyen @ Mason Hall Auditorium

Thao (Vicky) Nguyen will deliver a lecture titled “Biomechanics of the optic nerve head in glaucoma” as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Nguyen is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Marlin U. Zimmerman, Jr. Faculty Scholar.

Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by damage to the optic nerve axons and remodeling of the connective tissues in the optic nerve head. High pressure in the the eye is a major risk factor for the disease, and lowering this pressure is currently the only effective way to slow the disease’s progression. Nguyen seeks to understand the fundamental biomechanical mechanisms through which changes in the intraocular pressure alter the physiological function of cells and remodel the collagen structures of the optic nerve head. In this presentation, she will describe ongoing work to measure the deformation response of the cellular and connective tissue structures of the optic nerve head to pressure, characterize alterations with age and glaucoma, model the effects of structural variations on the deformation and stress response, and investigate the mechanisms through which stress can direct connective tissue growth and remodeling.


The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.

HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye)
Sep 27 2019 @ 4:30 pm – Jan 10 2020 @ 4:30 pm
HEMI Extreme Arts Exhibit: Symmetry & Fracture (Works by Jenna Frye) @ Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level

HEMI research asks fascinating questions about what happens to materials under extreme conditions. Much of HEMI’s research can’t be perceived without powerful scanning technologies, let alone touched. Touch and perception, however, are both essential to how artists and designers learn and understand the world.

Symmetry and Fracture offers a way to physically connect with the complex research ideas of HEMI labs through hands-on exploration of mineral crystal systems and the grain boundaries of metallic materials.

You are invited to playfully investigate and decide for yourself where or if boundaries lie between art and science.

Johns Hopkins Research Symposium on Engineering in Healthcare 2019
Nov 25 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
Johns Hopkins Research Symposium on Engineering in Healthcare 2019 @ Turner Auditorium, Johns Hopkins Hospital

The annual Johns Hopkins Research Symposium on Engineering in Healthcare brings together experts who advocate for leveraging new and emerging technologies to deliver better health care. We invite anyone – faculty, researchers, students, clinicians, and industry representatives – interested in artificial intelligence for healthcare to join us at the symposium this fall.

This year’s symposium topic is “AI in Healthcare: From Bench to Bedside.”
