Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences

At the IBBS in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, we work at the boundaries of current knowledge in biology, laying the foundations of future advances in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Any type of research is possible in the IBBS -- in addition to our nine departments, we have several interdisciplinary research programs as well as translational and collaborative research across all basic and clinical departments.

Please join us and learn more about what's going on at the cutting edge of biomedical research.

Greetings from the Director, Stephen Desiderio:

Collaboration at the Johns Hopkins IBBS

The concept of bench-to-bedside is perhaps best highlighted by some of the collaborative work between Johns Hopkins Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences biomedical engineering faculty members and clinicians across the School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins Hospital. BME researchers—faculty and student-led research teams—design, build and test devices to address and solve immediate health care needs. Biomedical engineer Nitish Thakor and colleagues and collaborators have partnered with neurologist Nathan Crone to test mind-controlled limbs they're developing as part of a major, U.S. Department of Defense funded project to build a brain-machine interface. Thakor talks about the history of this kind of large-scale, collaborative effort to translate research into treatment.
