New research center to serve as hub for immunology and engineering research

November 14, 2019

Without the conductor of the symphony, musicians wouldn't know what notes to play when, leading to a cacophony of sounds. Antigen presenting cells act as the conductors of the immune system, telling other immune cells when and where to come in. Johns Hopkins researchers will collaborate to create and improve new technology, including the creation of artificial antigen presenting cells, through a new center for ImmunoEngineering research.

Passing of Dr. David Page

November 1, 2019

It is with sadness that we learned of the passing of our long-time friend and colleague Dr. David Page. David graduated from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and in 1971 served as our Chief Resident in Pathology. In 1973 he joined the faculty at Vanderbilt Medical Center. David made a number of seminal contributions to the field of breast pathology. Over the years, members of our faculty often relied on David for his expert consultation on difficult breast pathology cases. He was also a gifted teacher and a much loved friend of our department. He will be missed.



2019 Nobel Prize Winner!

October 7, 2019

Gregg L. Semenza, M.D., Ph.D.
Congratulations to Dr. Gregg Semenza- one of the winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine! Gregg is on the faculty here at Johns Hopkins, and he was awarded the prize for his discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to changes in oxygen concentrations. This is important for pancreas tumors, because it turns out that one of the tumors that arises in the pancreas, serous cystadenoma, is caused by a mutation in the VHL gene, and VHL is one of the genes that Gregg has shown is important in sensing and responding to changes in cellular oxygen levels. Congratulations Gregg!
