Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program

As of November 2, 2020, the INBT has donated 5 meals to the Vernon Rice Memorial Drive!

The INBT is pleased to participate for a third year with the Johns Hopkins community in the Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program, which supports the Baltimore community. For every $25 raised, a basket with a fresh turkey and vegetables from a local farm will be provided to a family in need. In the past two years, the INBT has provided 31 meals to families in need. Learn more about Vernon Rice, the program, and how to donate.

Donations for the Thanksgiving holiday are due November 13, 2020. Donations for the December holidays are due December 11, 2020. If you donate, email Gina at ginawadas@jhu.edu so we can continue tracking how many meals we supported.

Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances Workshop @ Virtual

The Johns Hopkins Translational Immunoengineering is hosting a workshop series in January.

The field of immunoengineering combines the diverse and complex fields of engineering and immunology and is transforming patient treatment in cancer, autoimmunity, regeneration, and transplantation. There is a significant need for training of engineers in immunology and for training immunologists in quantitative engineering techniques. Moreover, there is need to bridge basic immunological discoveries with advances in clinical application. This course will review the fundamentals of the immune system and its components, engineering strategies to modulate the immune system, and clinical applications. This workshop series is also being offered for CME credit and as a two-credit course for Hopkins students.
