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.

Engineering in Aging Research: Highlights of the 14th Nano-Bio Symposium

Populations projects from U.S. census data shows that by the year 2050 the 65-year-old population will double and 20% of the population will be over 60 years-old. With a growing aging population comes concerns about socio-economic burdens, quality of life, age-associated disabilities, multi-morbidities, healthcare costs, and more.

To provide a fresh perspective on aging and aging research, experts from the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and the National Institute of Aging were invited to speak at the INBT’s 14th Nano-Bio Symposium on Engineering in Aging Research.
