JHU Antarctica researcher receives a surprise recognition
A glacial valley in Antarctica now bears the name of
the Johns Hopkins University scientist who has spent much
of his career traveling to that remote region to study how
the Earth's crust was formed and to challenge existing
theories on that process.
Located in the Olympus Range just south of Mt.
Hercules, "Marsh Cirque" takes its new name from Bruce
Marsh, professor in the Morton K.
Blaustein Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.
That honor was bestowed on Marsh in March by the U.S. Board
on Geographic Names, following a recommendation by the
Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names.
"I am, of course, quite pleased over this, and was
totally taken by surprise," said Marsh, who had just been
funded for four more years and two more expeditions to

Bayview and JHH earn Gold Seal stroke center
Johns Hopkins Hospital have earned the Gold Seal of
Approval for stroke care from the Joint Commission on
Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Bayview achieved
its designation in January and JHH did so in May. They are
among the first hospitals in Maryland to be awarded the
distinct Primary Stroke Center Certification.
JCAHO's certification program, launched in 2003 as the
nation's first, is based on nationally recognized standards
and guidelines published by the Brain Attack Coalition and
the American Stroke Association.
"Achieving certification means we have clearly
demonstrated the effectiveness of our stroke care programs,
and that means improved outcomes for our patients," said
Edward D. Miller, dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
"We are pleased that both of our programs, which work
closely together sharing faculty, clinicians and resources,
have achieved high praise and recognition."
Hopkins 4K for Cancer hits the road for San
Twenty-three students from Johns Hopkins and three
friends from other schools kicked off on Sunday the fourth
annual fund-raising cross-country bicycle journey known as
Hopkins 4K for Cancer. After an hourlong event on the steps
of Homewood's Shriver Hall, the students pedaled to the
Inner Harbor to ceremoniously dip their bikes' back tires
in the water before embarking on their 4,000-mile
coast-to-coast trip. The journey is scheduled to end on
Aug. 31 at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Upon
their arrival on the West Coast, the students will dip
their bikes' front tires in the water.
The purpose of the trip is to raise $60,000 for the
American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge, a residence for
out-of-town cancer patients seeking treatment at Baltimore
