Each year, the Johns Hopkins Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences invites science reporters to partake in a day-long event focused on a timely research topic. Reporters enjoy firsthand access to Johns Hopkins School of Medicine researchers and physicians, getting the opportunity to learn about the latest research in a particular field. Past events focused on topics ranging from sensory biology to epigenetics to pain and tissue regeneration and the brain to metabolism research.
