Our brains are robust and highly efficient, tasked with managing our memories, emotions and identity. But what happens when this organ breaks down?
The political side of climate change has been slightly quiet until recently. However while Trump was president, we did see movement — unfortunately in the backward direction. In one of my previous articles, I wrote about how Trump took the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement. This step was not exactly surprising, but it did remove the commitment of the U.S. to reduce its greenhouse gas production. Trump also reduced the Environmental Protection Agency’s funding by a third.

Cameron Brown knows he can’t wait to be a doctor, and as of earlier this year he had years worth of experiences to show for it on his application. He had experience working full-time at a neurology clinic and a job lined up researching the impact of housing mobility on children with asthma.

When asked what my majors are, I often hear the same response: “Interesting.”
After 26 years of work, the first image from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was unveiled on July 11, unveiling a slice of the distant universe to the public. The following day brought three additional images, alongside an atmospheric spectrum of the exoplanet WASP-96 b, heralding Webb’s stellar arrival.
There seems to be a stereotype going around that us STEM kids don’t know how to read. That we’re too engrossed with our mathematical proofs and cell cultures to be found between two pages of a book at Bird in Hand. From my interactions with several STEM majors, I would like to call cap on this idea.
A research team led by Dr. Cheng-Ying Ho, associate professor in the Department of Pathology at the Hopkins School of Medicine, recently published a postmortem study on the effect of SARS-CoV-2 infection on olfactory tissue degeneration in the Journal of American Medical Association.

Originally, I was hoping to write this piece about student experiences with the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). However, my plans pivoted when I got in touch with Belle Hartshorn, a senior Molecular and Cellular Biology major applying to medical school this summer. Hartshorn has never taken the MCAT, and she doesn’t plan to.
Astronomers are fascinated with the early universe, peering outwards in space and backward in time to the very beginnings of the cosmos. Technological advancements help further their research, including the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), which is specifically designed to see the earliest galaxies.
Amazon and Hopkins are collaborating to create JHU + Amazon Initiative for Interactive AI (AI2AI), a joint research initiative focused on gaining deeper insights into artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing.
The Bisciotti Foundation Translational Fund, which provides funding to Hopkins-affiliated medical groups, was recently awarded to three research teams. Each of these research teams has developed a product intended to solve some problem within the medical field. Ideally, the projects will help increase the accessibility of medical care. According to the Bisciotti Fund’s website, the Bisciotti Fund will aid the teams for up to nine months as they work to commercialize their creations.
A new sensor developed by researchers at Hopkins can detect communicable diseases like COVID-19, H1N1 and the Zika virus in saliva more accurately than traditional rapid tests at about the same speed.
Researchers from Hopkins have contributed to a group that has analyzed the first complete sequence of a human genome, led by Rajiv McCoy, Michael Schatz and Winston Timp. Their work is part of the Telomere-to-Telomere (T2T) consortium of over 100 researchers globally.
As the pandemic enters its third year, 23% of the U.S. population remains unvaccinated, many haven’t received a booster, and vaccine misinformation continues to spread. To address these issues, researchers at the Bloomberg School of Public Health’s International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC) developed the Vaccine Information Resource Assistant (VIRA): a chatbot designed to give personal, confidential answers to over 150 questions.
