On November 16, you can see what few people anywhere have seen: a demonstration of Hopkins’ thought-controlled prosthetic arm, the most advanced in the world. Join us to speak with the people developing this amazing technology, hear a patient share his incredible story, and learn about the Summer Program in Undergraduate Research that enables our students to work on this exciting, life-changing advance.

From 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 at the Hopkins Club, the Whiting School of Engineering will celebrate two milestones:
RSVP by February 2.
Ilya Shpitser, in the Department of Computer Science, will hold the John C. Malone Assistant Professorship, one of a series of professorships provided by John C. Malone, MS ’64, PhD ’69 to help recruit and retain faculty with the goal of improving healthcare using a systems-based approach. A data/inference specialist who focuses on inferring cause-effect relationships, Ilya will be a member of the new center. His research includes all areas of causal inference and missing data, particularly using graphical models. Recently, his work has helped distinguish between causation and association in observational medical data. Ilya started at Johns Hopkins as an assistant professor this summer, received his PhD under the supervision of Judea Pearl at UCLA, was a postdoctoral scholar in the program on causal inference at the School of Public Health at Harvard, and was a lecturer in statistics at the University of Southampton.
The Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, under the leadership of Greg Hager, the Mandell Bellmore Professor in the Department of Computer Science, is a multidisciplinary research initiative that will foster partnerships among engineers, clinicians, and scientists across Johns Hopkins University to catalyze, develop, and deploy innovations aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare.
John Malone has been remarkably generous in his support of Johns Hopkins, including a gift for the construction and naming of Malone Hall. The building, which opened in 2014, is designed to advance cutting-edge collaborative and translational research and has set a new standard for academic research facilities at Johns Hopkins. The Whiting School is grateful for Dr. Malone’s continued support of professorships and the naming of this new center in the Whiting School of Engineering.
The Hopkins Robotics Cup, hosted by the Center for Educational Outreach at Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering, has been rescheduled from January 30 on the JHU Homewood campus to Saturday, Feb. 6 at Highlandtown Elementary/Middle School, due to the recent winter weather.
The event is a competition open to all Baltimore City Public Schools with VEX Robotics teams. The game for 2016, Nothing But Net, challenges teams to build robots designed to score points by launching balls into nets with various target zones.
The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics will highlight its elite robotics students and showcase cutting-edge research projects in areas that include Medical Robotics, Extreme Environments Robotics, Human-Machine Systems for Manufacturing, BioRobotics and more. JHU Robotics Industry Day will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Hackerman Hall on the Homewood Campus at Johns Hopkins University.
Robotics Industry Day will provide top companies and organizations in the private and public sectors with access to the LCSR’s forward-thinking, solution-driven students. The event will also serve as an informal opportunity to explore university-industry partnerships.
You will experience dynamic presentations and discussions, observe live demonstrations, and participate in speed networking sessions that afford you the opportunity to meet Johns Hopkins most talented robotics students before they graduate.

The Institute for NanoBioTechnology invites you to celebrate National Nanotechnology Day. Bring your friends and colleagues and join us in celebrating the nanometer scale with food and beverages, a raffle prize, a selfie station, and practice your building skills with Nanoblocks.
The Johns Hopkins Research Symposium on Engineering in Healthcare brings together experts who advocate for leveraging new and emerging technologies to deliver better health care. This year’s theme is “Teaming with Technology Along the Care Spectrum.”
We invite all Johns Hopkins faculty, researchers, students, staff and clinicians, as well as industry representatives, to join us. This event is hosted by the Johns Hopkins Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality.
