The potential number of students from the Ph.D. programs in the schools of medicine and engineering who could begin next year in the Johns Hopkins-MedImmune Scholars Program, believed to be the first program of its kind between a major university and a biopharmaceutical company in the United States. Taught by university professors and MedImmune scientists, the graduate students will gain research experience through thesis projects conducted jointly in Johns Hopkins and MedImmune labs, with the goal of preparing them for careers in biopharma and biomedicine.

A New Name at 90

In 2011, All Children’s Hospital became the only U.S. hospital outside of the Baltimore/Washington metro area to join Johns Hopkins Medicine. In April, the integration became complete when the hospital unveiled its new name, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, at an event celebrating its 90th anniversary.

Match Madness

Watch a video capturing the excitement of Match Day 2016, when 105 fourth-year medical students learned where they’ll begin their residencies in July. About one-third of the class won’t have far to travel: 26 grads will head to The Johns Hopkins Hospital, two will go to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and two will train at the Wilmer Eye Institute. 

1.4 Million Metric Tons

The amount of CO2 emissions that won’t be released into the atmosphere over the next 20 years, thanks to a new solar project that is bringing clean energy to the East Baltimore medical campus. That’s equivalent to removing more than 313,000 cars from U.S. roads for one year. Located in Wye Mills, Maryland (due to lack of downtown roof space for such an ambitious project), the remote solar system was installed by SolarCity and features more than 40,000 panels across a 97-acre plot of land. It’s expected to offset about 18 percent of the total energy used by Johns Hopkins’ facilities in East Baltimore, according to SolarCity, which also maintains the project.
