It’s Quite a Stretch
The lush green lawn next to the Miller Research Building in East Baltimore served as a welcoming locale for a summer series of free yoga classes through September. The weekly classes—which were popular with students, faculty members and staff members from the school of medicine—were also held in Eager Park at Wolfe and Ashland streets.
The Eyes Have It
The zebrafish’s natural ability to regenerate the retinal tissue in its eye can by accelerated by controlling the fish’s immune system, according to new Johns Hopkins research led by Jeff Mumm, associate professor of ophthalmology.
The researchers hope that by harnessing the ability to improve regeneration in zebrafish, they can better understand how to induce regeneration in human eyes, which share many of the same mechanisms for controlling regenerative potential. “Humans have an evolutionary block on our ability to regenerate certain tissues,” says Mumm. “But humans still have the genetic machinery needed to regenerate retinal tissue, if we can activate and control it.” His team’s study appeared in April in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Making Dreams Possible
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine consistently ranks among the top three schools of medicine, and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where our students train, is among the nation’s top-ranked hospitals. Leading all medical disciplines, our alumni have extraordinary impact on medicine and humanity.
The school of medicine’s stature—and our benefit to patients, science, and society—hinges on the quality of our student body. Unfortunately, many exceptionally talented students choose other schools in order to avoid debt.
We need your help to sustain the unsurpassed excellence of our student body and the world-changing contributions of our graduates. For a limited time, we can offer incentive support from $12,500 to $125,000 to donors who make endowed scholarship gifts or pledges that meet certain parameters. To make a gift or learn more about this scholarship initiative, please contact Chad Newill, senior director of development at the School of Medicine:
