TTEC Inauguration

TTEC was officially inaugurated in the Smith Building Atrium.  Peter McDonnell, Andy Lee, Elliot McVeigh, and TTEC Director Jennifer Elisseeff spoke about the importance of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine at Johns Hopkins and the exciting new opportunities that will now be available.

International nanobio research opportunity for Hopkins students

Nanobiotechnology in Belgium is great, but their waffles might be better. (Mike Keung 2009)

Belgium is well known for developing many fine things: chocolate…beer…waffles.

Nanobiotechnology also tops the country’s list of research and development activities. Undergraduate and graduate students at Johns Hopkins University now have the chance to apply for a short-term nanobio research program in Belgium hosted by the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT).

Applications are now being accepted for INBT’s summer 2012 International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program. The application deadline is March 25, 2012. INBT funds several research internships at IMEC, The Inter-University MircroElectronics Centre, in Leuven, Belgium through the IRES program, funded by the National Science Foundation. Students work on collaborative research projects organized between Hopkins faculty and IMEC researchers at IMEC’s world-class microfabrication facility and learn to design, fabricate and test a wide range of biomedical devices. The internships are for 10 to 12 weeks and include travel expenses, accommodations and a stipend.

The IRES program is open to Johns Hopkins undergraduate and graduate students who are science or engineering majors and have at least one year of research experience. Graduate students should have additional relevant research experience. Students from under-represented racial/minority groups and women in science and engineering are especially encouraged to apply.

To apply for this unique opportunity, send your resume along with a summary of your research experience and the name and contact information of at least one faculty research advisor to Ashanti Edwards at aedwards@jhu.edu. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply. A very limited number of IRES positions are available, so don’t wait until the deadline to apply.

If you have additional questions, please contact Ashanti Edwards at aedwards@jhu.edu or (410) 516-6572 for more information on the application process.

Johns Hopkins and UVA co-host 2-day imaging workshop

Learn about state-of-the-art imaging methods at the In Vivo Preclinical Imaging: an Introductory Workshop, March 20-21 at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Medicine Turner Auditorium. Co-hosted by Johns Hopkins University, the University of Virginia and the Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM), this workshop will bring together gifted lecturers to cover the fundamentals of in vivo small animal imaging.

The workshop will cover an incredible breadth of material of interest and value to physicians, scientists (including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students) and scientific laboratory professionals interested in using molecular imaging for in vivo biomedical applications. Individuals with experience in small animal imaging as well as beginners are welcome. Participants learn the fundamentals of various small animal imaging modalities. A limited number of participants will also have the opportunity to register to attend a half-day, hands on workshop held on the afternoon of the second day, March 21. Registration for this unique opportunity is on first-come first-served, so don’t wait to register.

Speakers will address imaging modalities including MRI and MRS, PET, SPECT, optical imaging (bioluminescence & fluorescence imaging/tomography), ultrasound, x-ray CT, photoacoustic imaging and multimodality imaging. Speakers will also examine instrumentation, acquisition and reconstruction, MR/SPECT/PET imaging probes, targets and applications, small animal handling, techniques for imaging infectious disease models and data analysis.

More information about the workshop, including a full agenda of topics, registration and details about transportation and lodging can be found at the workshop website. www.snm.org/pci2012.
