Translation at INBT

Corporate participation at the INBT ensures that emerging technologies moves from laboratory to the marketplace, as well as provide a vehicle for open exchange between Hopkins researchers and students with their counterparts in industry. INBT seeks to work with established and newly-formed companies to transfer Hopkins-created technologies to market and provide Hopkins expertise to solve industry challenges. Learn more…

Education at INBT

The INBT has a unique model for training future researchers from the undergraduate through the postdoctoral level at the interface of nanoscience, biology, engineering, and medicine. Students from around the United States also train at the INBT during the summer in one of our two Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs. Learn more…

IRES Information Session @ Croft Hall G40, Johns Hopkins Homewood campus
Nov 13 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm
IRES Information Session @ Croft Hall G40, Johns Hopkins Homewood campus

Please join us for an information session on our International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program.

IRES fellows perform research on bioengineering projects at imec in Leuven, Belgium. International cooperation shows students the importance of collaborations in addressing global challenges in science and technology.

Imec is a government research institute working with universities, industry, and governments labs. They specialize in microelectronics and have world-class laboratories and manufacturing capabilities. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation and supports 3-5 Johns Hopkins students to work at imec where they will learn how to design, fabricate, and test a wide range of biomedical devices.

Learn more about the program on our website and student blogs website. This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students.

Refreshments will be served.

November Student Research Forum @ Shaffer Hall, Room 100, JHU Homewood Campus
Nov 19 @ 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm
November Student Research Forum @ Shaffer Hall, Room 100, JHU Homewood Campus

Please join us for the November session of the Student Research Forum. Students interested in presenting can sign up here.

This month’s guest speaker is Nishant Zachariah, PhD – Senior Principal Systems Engineer at Northrop Grumman. He received his MSE in biomedical engineering Johns Hopkins University and his PhD at Georgia Institute of Technology in electrical engineering.

To provide more teamwork opportunities and build bonds among graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, INBT implemented the Student Research Forum. The forum is built upon the collaborative core that INBT was founded on and provides opportunities for students to engage with each other on research topics and other professional aspects of research and training.

Each month during the academic year, the group gathers to hear student presentations on research or a business proposal. The presenters receive feedback from their peer audience on how to refine their research project or proposal. One to two guest speakers from a relevant industry organization is also present to provide feedback to the presenters, but to also discuss other topics with students such as research in industry, a career in industry, and how academia and industry work together. Students can use the time to network with peers they do not normally interact with in the INBT labs. At the end of each semester, those presenters compete in a final competition for a cash prize to use toward their research or proposal.

*The Student Research Forum is for INBT graduate students and postdoctoral fellows only.*
