November Student Research Forum

November 19, 2019 @ 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm
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.*
