My grandpa is the most disciplined 92-year-old I’ve ever met.
In a groundbreaking development, a team of Hopkins researchers has unveiled an innovation in HIV therapy that promises to transform the lives of individuals with the virus. This research, published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, offers a novel method to maintain clinically sufficient drug levels through an injectable solution that autonomously forms into a hydrogel.
In the Institute for Computational Medicine (ICM) special seminar series on Oct 3., Assistant Professor at the Integrated Mathematical Oncology Department at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute Renee Brady shared insights on using minimally invasive biomarkers to predict treatment responses. The talk shed light on using dynamics of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) as alternative treatment strategies, ultimately contributing to the reduction of cancer health disparities. Her team’s research findings were recently published in Clinical Cancer Research.
In the Sept. 26 Department of Computer Science (CS) Distinguished Lecture Series, Stefano Soatto, a CS professor from the University of California, Los Angeles, and Vice President of Applied Science for Amazon Web Services AI, spoke about the learning and controllability of large language models (LLMs) and computer vision. His talk, titled "Foundational Issues in AI: Views from the Real and Ideal Worlds," used analytic methods to address several concerns about the controllability of LLMs.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) hosted a seminar on Sept. 26 to showcase the research conducted by Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University Roarke Horstmeyer. The talk, titled "Computational 3D Video Microscopy with Multi-camera Arrays," explained the design and algorithm behind the state-of-the-art multi-camera array microscopes (MCAMs) and several use cases. The findings were published recently in Optica.
Jeong Hee Kim and Lintong Wu, two doctoral candidates in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, contributed to a study that examined an efficient screening method to detect therapy-induced senescent (TIS) cells that can increase the chance of therapy resistance and cancer relapse. This study, recently published in Science Advances, was in collaboration with researchers from the Polytechnic University of Milan and the National Research Council in Italy.
Molnupiravir, an antiviral SARS-CoV-2 medication, may be linked to SARS-CoV-2 mutations
One-lung ventilation (OLV), a practice required for many chest procedures, involves the ventilation of one lung and the deflation of the other but has many risks. Amid the height of the pandemic, the OnPoint Ventilation team — initiated as part of the Biomedical Engineering (BME) Design Team program — embarked on a mission to invent a safer instrument for this critical procedure, resulting in the Bronchosleeve, which will be presented at this year's Collegiate Inventors Competition in Washington, D.C.
HopHacks is the big name that brings passionate engineering students from across Maryland together with the common fantasy of transforming innovative ideas into working prototypes within a mere 36 hours.
Ever since I was young, I have been captivated by the intricacies of the small and unseen. While many are drawn to the grandeur of mountains, the vastness of oceans, or the breadth of the cosmos, I found myself enchanted by wonders that lay hidden to the naked eye. From gathering small stones that narrated tales from ages gone by, to admiring the intricate designs of a leaf's veins, these small spectacles have always held my fascination.
Contemporary scientists have been addressing the ever-pressing problem of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through carbon capture and storage, which captures, transports and stores CO2 produced by power plants and factories deep underground. A team led by Anthony Shoji Hall, an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, recently took emissions reduction efforts one step further. Hall and his team transformed atmospheric CO2 emissions into useful chemical energy that is sustainable and beneficial to the environment. Their work was recently published in Nature Catalysis.
On Wednesday, Sept. 20, the director of NanoBio Lab and founding executive director of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore, part of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Jackie Ying discussed functionalizing nanomaterials for various applications, such as increasing energy storage in batteries, preventing antimicrobial resistance and delivering anti-cancer agents.
Just as the seasons change, bringing rain with them, so too does scientific learning fall upon us. This week‘s scientific highlights include new insights into European Neanderthal populations, assumptions on one of Leonardo da Vinci‘s hypotheses proving false and a new phase for the Curiosity Rover.
Three years. Three years have passed since the emergence of the COVID-19 virus. Three years since “quarantine” and “mask-up” became a part of our daily vernacular. New coronavirus variants have been making headlines every day. A world of COVID-19 surges, masks and routine vaccinations is still settling as the new normal. After a hard-hitting “tripledemic,” a spike in the case numbers for three contagious viruses last year, namely the influenza (flu), COVID-19 and respiratory syncytial virus, what can we expect from the upcoming respiratory virus season this year?
Sophomore Jennifer Hu expected that research would be part of her Hopkins experience, but that didn’t mean it came without surprises. Through the Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships summer fellowship program, Hu began working with the Huganir Laboratory, which investigates neurotransmitter receptor function and synaptic transmission.
Although we are only three weeks into the semester, science has continued to progress as usual. Read on for details about machine learning in medicine, using ecstasy (MDMA) to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), scientific fraud and NASA’s new approach to Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP).
Prasad Vagdargi and his team from both the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Hopkins invented a real-time endoscopic guidance method for neurosurgeries that resembles navigational technologies in self-driving cars. Their findings were recently published in IEEE Transactions on Medical Robots and Bionics.
This week’s news highlights work from researchers around the world whose focuses range from sleep deprivation to flexible robots. We invite you to take a moment to appreciate endeavors and advances in a variety of science fields made by experts around the globe.
On Tuesday, Sept. 5, Grossman School of Medicine of New York University (NYU) professor Damian Ekiert presented his research on the proteins that transport lipids across the cellular membranes of gram-negative bacteria.
I grew up in Shanghai, a buzzing metropolitan city with busy traffic and intricate crossroads. As an eight-year-old who did not accurately communicate pick-up time with my parents, I once managed to walk two miles from school to home without getting lost in the city traffic. However, I could not summon up the courage to do so until I mentally mapped the route I would take with great precision: turn left at the grocery store with the green and white shed and walk two more blocks after the bridge. I created a cognitive map where external landmarks provided me with spatial directions that guided me home.
