Federal funding sustains much of the critical research underway at Johns Hopkins University and Medicine. The biennial event, Hopkins on the Hill, showcases the range, value, and impact of this work.

Instead of the usual one big event on Capitol Hill, Hopkins on the Hill is virtual this year, with lunchtime programming spread across May and June. It’s a chance to learn about the cutting-edge science and projects, straight from the early career researchers and practitioners working on it. The sessions will cover everything from space exploration and extreme materials development to Hopkins’ work to track and combat COVID-19.

May 5: How Does Federal Research Funding Work?

May 12: How Do We Redirect an Asteroid?

May 19: How Will Extreme Materials Save the World?

May 27: How Can We Support People Who Want to Age at Home?

June 2: How Do Researchers Partner with Indigenous Communities to Improve Health and Well Being?

June 9: How Do You Prepare for A Highly Infectious Disease?

June 16: How Can Weather Prediction Save Lives and Money?

June 23: How Can We Address Educational Disparities Exacerbated By COVID-19?

June 30: How Do You Track A Pandemic for the Entire World?

WHEN: Hopkins on the Hill at Home 2021 will be held weekly from noon to 1 p.m. on the Hopkins at Home platform.

TO ATTEND: Register HERE for all events.

BACKGROUND: The inaugural event was held in 2017 and drew more than 250 guests who learned about and interacted with federally-funded researchers from across Johns Hopkins. In 2019, the event grew to include interactive presentations from 21 teams representing all parts of the university. More than 500 people attended.

The 2021 event is co-hosted by Hopkins at Home, the Office of Research and Johns Hopkins University & Medicine Office of Federal Affairs.
