Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology held its first annual pre-doctoral (graduate) student retreat at the Mount Washington Conference Center on Sunday, October 28, 2007.
Graduate Students, Faculty Network at INBT Inaugural Retreat
Baltimore, MD | Posted on November 12th, 2007
The retreat was arranged to engage students involved in both the National Science Foundation sponsored Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship—or NanoBio IGERT—and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) sponsored Interdisciplinary Graduate Training in Nanotechnology for Biology and Medicine—or NBMed Program. Four faculty members affiliated with INBT presented their research during the morning speaker session. Speakers from the School of Medicine included Douglas Robinson, assistant professor of cell biology, and Jonathan Schneck, professor of pathology. Presenters from the Whiting School of Engineering included Hai-Quan Mao, assistant professor of materials science, and David Gracias, assistant professor of chemical & biomolecular engineering. Terrence Dobrowsky, a student in the HHMI program, also presented.
Denis Wirtz, associate director of INBT and professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, began the retreat by welcoming eight new students into the INBT's graduate training programs. There are 15 students altogether in both programs, and they come from the departments of Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical an Biomolecular Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, and Biology.
About 45 students and faculty participated in a lively question and answer session in the morning, a chance to network during lunch, and further discussion during the afternoon poster session. INBT wishes to thank education program coordinator Ashanti Edwards for making the institute's inaugural retreat such a huge success.
