“To be honest, I didn’t even know I received the Goldwater Scholarship,” Mickey Sloat said in an interview with The News-Letter. “My friend, who was a previous winner, texted me about it, and when I went online and looked I was totally shocked.”
A survey was sent out recently to the Hopkins clinical research community to call for help with coronavirus (COVID-19) clinical research projects.
As of April 20, all but five state governors have issued stay-at-home orders to slow the spread of the coronavirus. As approximately 95 percent of the population stays indoors, some are turning to video games to pass the time.
Before I start my column, I hope everyone is staying safe during this pandemic. It definitely has not been easy to stay at home and not be able to hang out or go places, but of course, it is necessary for the world and for the well-being of everyone.
Humans are not the only species whose lives have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The National Institutes of Health released a statement earlier this month citing concerns about the care of research animals.
Approximately two long, long months ago, I wrote a piece about looking for summer research and internships. A month ago, I wrote a piece about dealing with rejection from summer internships and making the best of a non-ideal summer.
Why do humans fail to act in their own interest when it comes to the environment, despite knowing what ought to be done? This is the guiding question that Erica Schoenberger, a professor in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering, will explore as a Guggenheim Fellow.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic rapidly spread across the country, schools have shut their doors and classes have moved online in order to slow the spread. The transition to online learning has impacted not only teachers, who have had to amend their courses, but also students who have had to adjust to a new learning environment.
As nations across the world grapple with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, conservationists and environmental organizations are calling on policymakers and the public to address the root cause of the pandemic and other outbreaks: the wildlife trade and habitat destruction. Evidence increasingly suggests that increased contact between humans and wild animals is contributing to the emergence of novel communicable illnesses.
As an individual afforded the luxury of staying home, the ever present screen in front of me oscillates between the news, the Netflix show I’ve chosen to binge-watch and the assignment I’m avoiding.

If I’m feeling disheartened, another episode of Tiger King it is.
Hopkins creates U.S.-specific map tracking COVID-19 testing and hospital capacity
Kirsten Hall, a PhD candidate studying Astrophysics, was recently named to the 2020 cohort of Schmidt Science Fellows. The program, which works in partnership with the Rhodes Trust, seeks to recognize future leaders among doctoral candidates across all scientific disciplines.
The prefix “epi” typically connotes being above or at the surface level of something. However, research at the intersection of epigenetics and epidemiology probes our understanding of the interaction between genes and environmental factors to the deepest levels.
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).

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.
