Epidemiologists and medical professionals argue that the risk of a second wave of infection of the coronavirus (COVID-19) could outweigh any prospective economic gains.
Medical institutions have steadily adopted artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and tools to enhance medical services, from image recognition to finding a cure for cancer. The rise and influence of AI and machine learning in health care was the focus of Luis Ahumada’s talk titled “Emerging Machine Learning Methods and the Future of Machine Learning in Health Care” for the Health Sciences Informatics Grand Rounds on March 27.
As the number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases surge, so do treatment options. A new solution proposed by Dr. Arturo Casadevall, an immunologist at the Hopkins School of Medicine, has recently moved into clinical trials after fast-track approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, Hopkins is actively making efforts to combat the pandemic by integrating dozens of fields of expertise to find solutions.
News about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can seem like a hotbed of paradoxical information, lacking in clear answers because there is still so much to learn. While it is important to stay informed and aware about what exactly is going on, knowing what questions to ask can be just as hard as finding the right answers.
Hopkins is known for the strength of its STEM curriculum and for the number of undergraduates immersed in some kind of scientific research on campus. Outside of the Homewood Campus, institutions like the Baltimore Underground Science Space, the Maryland Science Center and the National Aquarium make Baltimore an exciting place for scientific exploration.
A team at Hopkins is working to develop a ventilator splitter that will allow hospitals to maximize the utility of their existing ventilators. As the number of cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) rapidly increases, hospitals across the nation are struggling to manage the influx of patients with insufficient supplies.
NASA considers making a telescope out a lunar crater
Two Hopkins clinical microbiologists — Dr. Karen Carroll and Dr. Heba Mostafa — have recently developed a coronavirus (COVID-19) screening test that may soon allow the Hopkins health system to test as many as 1,000 people per day.
My fellow Quaren-teens,
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis intensifies across the U.S., now accounting for 20 percent of global cases, the American people heavily depend on the actions of the government for their health and safety. At the center of this response are two individuals — President Donald Trump and Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci, described by the New York Times as, “the nation’s leading expert on infectious disease,” has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease since 1984.
As the number of people with the coronavirus (COVID-19) rises steadily, hospitals contend with a possible overflow of patients and face difficult decisions.
3D Printing used to create medical gear amid shortage during COVID-19 outbreak
As the number of cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) surges in the U.S., a shortage of medical supplies has emerged, among which personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves have taken the greatest hit. The shortage is in part the result of public panic, which has resulted in many citizens buying these supplies in bulk.
Since the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) predominantly affects the respiratory system, several studies have looked at the connection between smoking or vaping and the risk of COVID-19 infection. Scientists suspect that smoking and vaping increase a person’s risk of severe COVID-19.
The Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies held a webinar titled “The Coronavirus Crisis: Responses in China, Italy, and the United States” on March 26 to discuss responses to the coronavirus (COVID-19) from a global political standpoint.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, most labs at Hopkins — apart from those researching the virus — have closed. The closure has disrupted the work of many researchers in the Hopkins community.
For many of us, social distancing — forbidding large gatherings and keeping six feet away from others — is quickly becoming the new normal. As leaders in public health suggest that this may be the best way for us all to survive the pandemic, “flattening the curve” has become a mantra that unites us all.
Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, scientists in both the public and private sectors have been testing various experimental vaccines to curtail long-term damage of the virus.
