Young investigators honored
School of Medicine recognizes the talents of students and
How we listen to ourselves when we talk, the
underlying defect in a rare neurological disorder and a
plan for identifying potential drugs faster and cheaper are
a few of many research projects that will be honored this
year at the 30th annual Young Investigators' Day at Johns
Hopkins. Eleven students and seven fellows will be
celebrated, along with all young investigators in the
School of Medicine.
Search for provost now under way
A national search is well under way to identify a
successor to Steven Knapp, the university's
provost and senior vice president of academic affairs, who
will be stepping down this summer to assume the presidency
of George Washington University.
