Advancements in Research
Researchers at Johns Hopkins are constantly advancing science through basic, translational and clinical investigations. Here are highlights of our most current findings.
Understanding the Fossil History to Preserve the Present
Meet Siobhán Cooke, assistant professor of functional anatomy and evolution. A spelunking paleontologist in the caves of the Caribbean, she is out to preserve the planet by sharing her understanding of historical extinctions, one fossil at a time. Similar to her pop culture counterpart Indiana Jones, Cooke teaches by day and devotes the rest of her time to paleontological research.
Science: Out of the Box
Johns Hopkins biophysicist Cynthia Wolberger explains how the small protein ubiquitin regulates many events in the cell, including turning genes off and on.
Epigenetics: A Symphony of Discovery
Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center Director, Bill Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., discusses epigenetics using musicians from the Peabody Institute.

Love Your Beauty Rest? You Can Thank These Brain Cells
Johns Hopkins researchers report the unexpected presence of a type of neuron in the brains of mice that appears to play a central role in promoting sleep by turning ‘off’ wake-promoting neurons. The newly identified brain cells, located in a part of the hypothalamus called the zona incerta, they say, could offer novel drug targets to treat sleep disorders, such as insomnia and narcolepsy, caused by the dysfunction of sleep-regulating neurons.
