JHU President States Leadership Goal in Nanobiotech

Johns Hopkins President William R. Brody announced at an October 28 dinner for alumni and benefactors that the Knowledge for the World campaign goal has been raised to $3.2 billion, saying that society faces formidable new challenges and more than ever needs what Hopkins produces: discoveries that make a difference.

In an e-mail announcement sent to the Hopkins community, Brody identified nanobiotechnology as a new opportunity to apply the knowledge developed at Hopkins to benefit humankind. “We live in a new world where we stand to reap almost unthinkably large benefits from the exploration of the almost immeasurably small,“ he wrote. “Johns Hopkins must be a leader in nanobiotechnology.“
