Sep 19 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Developing Nations is an annual event presented by Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Office of Research Administration. This event discusses commercialization pathways for public health technologies aimed at solving problems found in developing nations.

This year’s topic is Life Changing Innovations: Turning Ideas Into Products. Johns Hopkins researchers along with public, private, and government experts to will discuss commercialization efforts that facilitate the care of patients globally by bridging the gap between healthcare in developed nations and efforts in developing ones.  Panel topics include:

  • Pathways to Commercialization: Innovative Models for Public Health-based Technologies
  • Public and Private Partnerships
  • Mobile Health Solutions for the Developing World

CBID Innovation SharkTank
Jan 30 @ 1:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Luccie Wo Portrait

Shark Tank is a one-of-a-kind event where industry experts pose stimulating questions to CBID MSE student teams about their MedTech projects. A mid-year design project showcase and reception will follow the challenging throw down. Two of last year’s projects were honored with the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) BMEidea 2013 Awards.

Celebrate two WSE milestones on Feb 5
Feb 5 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

From 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 at the Hopkins Club, the Whiting School of Engineering will celebrate two milestones:

  • Naming Ilya Shpitser as a John C. Malone Assistant Professor
  • Announcing the formation of the Whiting School of Engineering’s Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare

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.
