Johns Hopkins scholars, leaders celebrate faculty research awards
Scholars from across Johns Hopkins University’s 10 divisions gathered last night at the George Peabody Library to celebrate 60 innovative research projects that are being supported by the inaugural Catalyst and Discovery awards.
Thirty-seven early career scholars (five of them from WSE) received Catalyst Awards and 23 cross-divisional faculty teams, which included 14 WSE faculty members, received Discovery Awards as part of a $15 million commitment to support faculty research over three years.
In his remarks, university President Ronald J. Daniels praised the award winners’ creativity and boldness, and the “unprecedented collaborations that draw on your individual strengths and unite our divisions in tackling daunting research questions.”
