Without prompt care, a badly wounded soldier can easily bleed to death while being transported to a distant medical station. Two traditional treatments—tourniquets and medicated gauze pads—often cannot stop the blood loss from a deep wound at the neck, shoulder or groin. To give these soldiers a fighting chance at survival, Johns Hopkins undergraduates have invented an injectable foam system designed to stop profuse bleeding from a wound where a limb or the head is connected to the torso.
Celebrate the 214th wedding anniversary of Charles Carroll Jr. and Harriet Chew Carroll by savoring a traditional afternoon tea at their Federal era country house, Homewood.
A relic from long before the age of supercomputers, the 169-year-old math strategy called the Jacobi iterative method is widely dismissed today as too slow to be useful. But thanks to a curious, numbers-savvy Johns Hopkins engineering student and his professor, it may soon get a new lease on life.
The Johns Hopkins University is joining the University of Maryland, George Washington University and Virginia Tech in a regional collaboration called Innovation Corps, designed to train faculty and student researchers to transform ideas into products and get them on the market..
Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering students have designed a lightweight, easy-to-conceal shirt-like garment to deliver life-saving shocks to patients experiencing serious heart problems. The students say their design improves upon a wearable defibrillator system that is already in use. Their design changes, the students say, should help persuade patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest to wear the system around the clock.
Johns Hopkins University and Morgan State University today joined forces in a new collaborative educational program designed to combine the strengths of both institutions to benefit their students and faculty members, as well as the fields of science and engineering. The “Extreme Science Internships” program will build a bridge between talented science and engineering students at Morgan State and faculty and researchers at the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) at the Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering, as well as other universities, laboratories and research institutes across nine states and Germany.

Media Advisory: 34 Baltimore City School Teams to Compete Saturday, April 5, in Robotics Contest at Johns Hopkins
On Saturday, April 5, in the Newton White Athletic Center on The Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus, more than 100 middle and high school students from Baltimore City Public Schools will compete in the Hopkins Robotics Cup, the Baltimore City VEX Robotics Championship competition. The event is being hosted by the Center for Educational Outreach at Johns Hopkins’ Whiting School of Engineering, in partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools. The Center’s mission is to increase the number of youth who pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and careers, particularly women and underrepresented minorities.
Major League Baseball has begun to get some high-tech help with scheduling. But for their 15 affiliated minor leagues, assembling the multi-team, multi-game calendar remains a tedious, time-consuming task that must be completed by hand. Soon, there may be a better way. Johns Hopkins students and faculty members have started tossing advanced math and powerful computing tools at the arcane art of planning game dates. The result is a new scheduling system that has piqued the interest of minor baseball league executives—and may prove to be useful in applications beyond the ballpark.
MEDIA ADVISORY: State Finals for Maryland Science Olympiad to Be Held Saturday, March 29, at Johns Hopkins’ Homewood Campus
More than 750 Maryland middle and high school students are expected to participate in the Maryland Science Olympiad state finals. The event is being hosted by the Center for Educational Outreach at Johns Hopkins’ Whiting School of Engineering, in partnership with Maryland Science Olympiad. The Center’s mission is to increase the number of youth who pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education and careers, particularly women and underrepresented minorities.
Dolby will also be artistic director of a film center Johns Hopkins is launching along with the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Maryland Film Festival in Station North, Baltimore’s nascent arts and entertainment district. The center will be a key facet of Johns Hopkins’ efforts to revitalize that neighborhood, which is located between the main campus and downtown Baltimore.
