INBT recruiting for multiple training programs

INBT is currently recruiting for multiple programs.  Check out the links below for more information.

Global Engineering Innovations teams seeking new members

Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology is seeking new participants for its Global Engineering Innovations program and will host a presentation by the leader of the team in Brazil on Monday, October 28 at 5 p.m. in Schaffer 304 on the Homewood campus. Global Engineering Innovations (GEI) involves interdisciplinary student teams collaborating with international hosts to develop solutions to problems around the world.

Nathan Nicholes, pre-doctoral student in the chemical and biomolecualr engineering lab of Marc Ostermeier, will discuss the work his team has accomplished so far in Amazonas, Brazil developing an improved cassava mill. GEI is actively recruiting team members to join the group in Brazil. The team from Ocurex, which manufactures a portable retinograph machine, will also present their work for consideration for a future project.

Come learn how you can be involved in this program that combines engineering skills with international outreach. Pizza and soda will be provided.  For more information, visit INBT’s Global Engineering Innovations website here.
