Recognizing shortcomings in the public perception of scientists, Kelsey and her colleagues have published an editorial article in Molecular Cell with guidelines for how young (and old) scientists can better interface with our communities and our constituents.
We are excited to welcome the PMB class for 2018! They have officially arrived and already attended their first IBR retreat.
PMB faculty member Kalina Hristova (Materials Science and Engineering) has been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE)’s College of Fellows.
This past weekend, applicants nationwide flew into Baltimore for the Graduate Program in Molecular Biophysics’ Prospective Students Visiting Weekend. The visiting weekend allows current members of the Biophysics department to get to know the candidates in a more natural setting while providing an environment where these prospective students can learn more about the program and gain a holistic idea of what their time at Hopkins would be like.
PMB faculty member Vincent Hilser leads a team of scientists that “cracked a key part of the mystery surrounding a distinct type of protein” that could lead to treatments for diseases from cancer to neurological disorders. Science!
Dr. Rachel Green was one of seven Hopkins faculty members newly elected to the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine. Members of NAM are recognized for having made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health.
The incoming PMB class for 2017 has arrived and already attended their first IBR Retreat. We are so excited to have them here to do science with us!
PMB faculty member Taekjip Ha is set to receive the Kazuhiko Kinosita Award in Single Molecule Biophysics for his “leadership in the development of single-molecule techniques and their application to nucleic acid processing enzymes and particularly for his efforts to elevate an appreciation of single molecule studies among scientists in general.”
Jeff Gray, Bertrand Garcia-Moreno, James Berger, Jie Xiao, Taekjip Ha, Sua Myong and Marc Greenberg were all part of various interdisciplinary research teams who received support this year from JHU’s Discovery Awards program.
