Happy 10th Anniversary INBT! Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology was established on May 16, 2006 with funding from the National Institutes of Health and NASA. Over the last decade, we have achieved many exceptional accomplishments and attained significant research milestones. INBT has attracted nearly $70 million in research funding and added more than 250 affiliated faculty members from across many divisions and departments of the university. INBT has launched several spin-off research centers, such as the Physical Sciences Oncology Center and the Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence. The Institute has also initiated nanobio-related training programs for students from pre-college through the postdoctoral level, such as the NanoBio Research Experience for Undergraduates and the International Research Experience for Students, in which participants travel to Belgium to conduct nanobio research in IMEC’s world-class research facility. Hundreds of students have completed these programs and our alumni hold outstanding positions within industry and academia. INBT also has developed strong corporate partnerships and continues to seek ways to move innovative research that solves the pressing problems in human health from the laboratory to the marketplace.
On April 21, INBT hosted an open house and anniversary celebration that attracted more than 100 people to its headquarters in Croft Hall on the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University. We also invited visitors to participate in 15 hands-on demonstrations developed by labs located in the building.
Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate with us on that day and to those who continue to support us every day as INBT furthers its mission as a hub for innovative multidisciplinary research.
