Discoveries for a Better Tomorrow
At Johns Hopkins Medicine, research is the backbone of what we do. From stem cell therapy to epigenetics, from bench to bedside, our researchers are among the best in their field. Research is more than just a job — it’s a passion. This short video series provides a glimpse into the work of some of our researchers. Watch to find out how today’s discoveries are building a better tomorrow. Follow our research journey on social media — and share your thoughts on reaching a better tomorrow — using #TomorrowsDiscoveries. As you will see in these videos, our researchers work every day to better understand diseases and disorders that include stroke, schizophrenia and leukemia.
Preventing Heart Failure – David Alan Kass, M.D.
Over the course of his 30 years at Johns Hopkins, David Kass, M.D., has worked to understand why the heart fails and what we can do about it. He and his team developed a pacemaker-like treatment that coordinates the heartbeat. This treatment, called cardiac resynchronization, is now used worldwide.
Treating Progeria in Children – Susan Michaelis, Ph.D.
Susan Michaelis, Ph.D., and her team study a rare premature aging disease called progeria, which provides a unique window into the normal aging process.
Metabolism Changes after Surgery – Clare J. Lee, M.D., M.H.S.
Clare Lee, M.D., M.H.S., and her team of researchers focus on understanding the changes to a person’s metabolism that occur after weight loss surgery.
Facial Bones Regeneration – Warren L. Grayson, Ph.D.
Warren Grayson, Ph.D., is working alongside teams of engineers, plastic and orthopaedic surgeons, a material scientist and a stem cellologist to develop innovative 3-D printing technologies that—together with stem cells from all fat tissues—can regenerate facial bones loss at injury or disease.
