HopHacks is the biannual hackathon hosted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. For 36 hours students work in teams of up to four people, to bring a software or hardware idea to life. Last fall, we gathered more than 360 of the most creative and talented students from JHU, MIT, UMD, CMU, Rutgers, NYU, and many more. This fall, we expect to host even more students from institutions across the country. This February 16-18, we welcome you to join the HopHacks community.Click here for more information!

Barclay Elementary/Middle School
Professional engineers, JHU faculty and student groups will teach 6th-8th graders about engineering careers through presentations and hands-on activities. (Event is part of the Barclay-Hopkins STEM partnership and not open to the public.)
The Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins includes more than 3,600 basic and clinical science researchers at the faculty level; 1,200 graduate and medical students; and 1,400 fellows. The 2018 Department of Medicine Research Retreat is a joint retreat with the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering.
This full-day event will include awards for the best posters, the Levine and Brancati Mentoring Awards, and basic and clinical research presentations by senior Johns Hopkins faculty. Art projects from the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine will be spotlighted in the retreat exhibition area.
Robert Langer, the David H. Koch Institute Professor at MIT, will deliver this year’s keynote lecture. Langer is the author of more than 1,400 articles and the most cited engineer in history (h-index 239). Worldwide, he has in excess of 1,260 issued and pending patents that have been licensed or sublicensed to more than 300 pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, and medical device companies.Click here to register!

Senior Manager/Associate Director
The 2018 Johns Hopkins Healthcare Design Competition is open to all student-led teams from around the world that have designed health-related solutions. Student teams will compete in three competition tracks: Designs of Solutions for Advanced Health Systems; Global Health/Humanitarian Design; and Healthcare Apps/Information Technology Design.
This event is sponsored by Boston Scientific and hosted by the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design.
The nationally recognized Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition, hosted by the Center for Leadership Education, provides an opportunity for students to take a novel idea or innovative technology and develop a business plan based around it. Starting with a concept, students build an understanding of their target market, analyze potential competitors, craft an effective market entry strategy, and present their plans to industry professionals and venture capitalists. This highly popular event, held on the Homewood campus, draws teams from all divisions of the university.
The 19th Annual Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition, sponsored by the Center for Leadership Education, will run from February through April 27, 2018.
Visit the JHU Business Plan Competition website for more information.
Heidi Nepf, the Donald and Martha Harleman Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will deliver the 35th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture.
The lecture will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, in 210 Hodson Hall.
How vegetation alters waves and current, and the feedbacks to environmental system function
Vegetation provides a wide range of ecosystem services valued at over 4 trillion dollars per year. Seagrasses, salt marshes, and mangroves, damp storm surge and waves, mitigate anthropogenic nutrient loads, and provide important habitat and blue carbon reservoirs. The conservation and restoration of these landscapes has become the center-point of nature-based solutions for coastal protection and carbon mitigation. This seminar will summarize basic concepts in vegetation hydrodynamics, focusing on flexible meadows of seagrass, for which the bending of plants in response to fluid motion (called reconfiguration) plays an important role in setting the drag. Scaling laws are developed to describe the damping of currents, turbulence and waves as a function of plant morphology, flexibility, and shoot density. The feedbacks from plant-flow interaction to sediment transport and carbon sequestration are also discussed.
Sponsored by the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the JHU Student Section and the Baltimore Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
The annual Nano-Bio Symposium is INBT’s signature event to showcase our multidisciplinary programs and researchers from across the entire University. The event provides an opportunity to hear presentations by leading scholars in the field, both from Hopkins and other institutions. It also offers a unique opportunity to meet and network with faculty and experts to establish new collaborations.
The annual symposium is hosted by INBT and the Physical Science-Oncology Center. This years theme will be Advanced Biomanufacuring and take place at the Homewood campus in the Glass Pavilion.
