Vernon Rice Memorial Holiday Turkey Program
Oct 1 – Nov 8 all-day
Vernon Rice Memorial Holiday Turkey Program

The INBT is pleased to participate for the sixth year with the Johns Hopkins community in the Vernon Rice Memorial Holiday Turkey Program, which supports the Baltimore community. For every $45 raised, a basket with a fresh turkey and vegetables from a local farm will be provided to a family in need. Learn more about Vernon Rice, the program, and how to donate. You can also read this story about the program by the Johns Hopkins Hub.

Donations for the Thanksgiving holiday are due November 8, 2023. If you donate, email Gina at so she can continue tracking how many meals we supported. So far, the INBT has provided 73 meals since the team has started participating.



National Nanotechnology Day @ Croft Hall G40
Oct 9 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
National Nanotechnology Day @ Croft Hall G40

Join the Institute for NanoBioTechnology in celebrating National Nanotechnology Day. We’ll have nano-focused bingo, nano building blocks, molding clay, snack-sized treats, and more. Come socialize with other INBT community members.

National Nanotechnology Day is an annual event featuring community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, its use in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10 –9 meters. Learn more about the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s Nanotechnology Day.

The theme for this year’s National Nanotechnology Day is “Enabling the Nanotechnology Revolution.” This phrase is inspired by the vision statement for the NNI which is to enable “a future in which the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale leads to ongoing revolutions in technology and industry that benefit society.” This year we are celebrating nanotechnology’s achievements over the past 20 years, as well as looking forward to how the NNI can continue to best support critical and emerging technologies of the future.


Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances (2024) @ Virtual
Jan 2 @ 4:00 pm – Jan 18 @ 5:30 pm
Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances (2024) @ Virtual

The Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances workshop is hosted by Johns Hopkins Translational Immunoengineering. The workshop meets twice a week for three weeks and participants are eligible for CME credit. The workshop is also offered as a one-credit course to Johns Hopkins students

The immunoengineering field is transforming cancer, autoimmunity, regeneration, and transplantation treatments by combining the diverse and complex fields of engineering and immunology. There is a significant need to train engineers in immunology and immunologists in quantitative engineering techniques. Moreover, there is a need to bridge basic immunological discoveries with advances in clinical application. This workshop features 12 speakers that will review immune system fundamentals and components, engineering strategies to modulate the immune system, and clinical applications.

After attending this workshop, the learner will demonstrate the ability to:
– Review the fundamentals and recent discoveries in the function of the immune system.
– Identify engineering strategies to manipulate the immune system.
– Describe the clinical applications of immunoengineering.

The full schedule, speakers, topics, and registration information are available on JH-TIE’s website.
