Johns Hopkins receives $30 million to lead research consortium
Johns Hopkins University has been awarded up to $30 million to lead a consortium of three Mid-Atlantic universities that will work together on research projects with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
The program, called the Professional Research Experience Program, will combine educational programs with real-world experiences to help students understand industry demands and advance measurement science.
The five-year program will involve undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and academic affiliates. It will be led by the university’s Whiting School of Engineering and Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, which will work closely with the other members of the consortium, Morgan State University and State University of New York at Binghamton.
“The science and engineering posture across these three universities connects synergistically with many of the research thrust areas directly tied to National Institute of Standards and Technology laboratories and facilities,” said Larry Nagahara, associate dean of research for the Whiting School and the program’s technical coordinator.
