Students Lead NanoBio Retreat

Four student presentations, as well as talks by affiliated faculty members, and a poster session highlighted the Oct. 18, fall retreat for the Institute for NanoBioTechnology at Johns Hopkins University. Student presenters included Janice Lin, W. Garrett Jenkinson, Ziqiu (Tommy) Tong and Lamia Wahba. Jenkinson, Lin, Tong, and Wahba are pre-doctoral fellows of INBT’s NanoBio IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship), funded by the National Science Foundation. The annual fall retreat gives students from INBT’s educational programs a chance to learn about one another’s research, hear presentations from INBT faculty experts, and network for potential collaborations. Michael Yu, associate professor of Materials Science and Engineering and INBT affiliated faculty member, gave the keynote presentation.
