The yearly Nano-Bio Symposium is INBT’s signature event to showcase and celebrate the latest discoveries from our multidisciplinary researcher teams. It brings scholars together from the Johns Hopkins community, academia, industry, and more to network, share knowledge and ideas, and foster new collaborations.

The symposium is a full day event that is currently held on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, but in previous years was hosted at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. It not only includes presentations and panel discussions by keynote speakers, but it is also a chance for students to showcase their research in a poster session. Notable keynote speakers have come from the National Institute of Aging, Agilent Technologies, GE Healthcare, Osiris Therapeutics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Maryland, Northwestern University, Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

This event is free and open to the public and is held late spring to early summer. The theme for each symposium is typically announced in January and registration opens in February.
