$1.2 Million

Scot Kuo’s share of a $17 million award from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the foundation launched by Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, pediatrician Priscilla Chan.

Kuo, who is director of imaging at the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences and director of the school of medicine’s Microscope Facility, is a pioneer in efforts to improve the field of microscopy. He has helped hundreds of scientists at Johns Hopkins look far more closely at cells and the structures within them. The funds will help Kuo (one of 17 scientists to share in the award) make new inventions that will push the field of microscopy further and spur scientists to make progress toward improving human health.

Comprehensive Policing

“We believe in the end that this legislation reflects an approach to university and community safety that we can be proud of at Johns Hopkins and in Baltimore, setting a standard as the most comprehensive set of university policing requirements anywhere.”

—Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels and Paul B. Rothman, dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, in a joint memo issued in April after Maryland’s General Assembly approved legislation that allows The Johns Hopkins University to establish its own police department, clearing the way for the bill to become law.

The legislation, a key step in the university’s ongoing efforts to improve safety on and around its campuses in Baltimore, authorizes Johns Hopkins to replace its current team of armed, off-duty Baltimore Police Department officers with sworn university police officers. It also includes new funding for initiatives and programs designed to strengthen communities in Baltimore and across the state. Once the bill is signed into law, it will go into effect on July 1, at which time the university will begin a multiyear planning and implementation period.
