Highlights from Jan. 30, 2014

On January 30, Johns Hopkins alumni, parents, and friends came together for a glimpse into the Johns Hopkins Individualized Health Initiative, a priority of Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins.

The event featured remarks by Patricia M. Davidson, dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, and a lively panel discussion ledy by Scott L. Zeger, director of the Individualized Health Initiative. Uniting clinicians, basic scientists, engineers, and health system administrators, the initiative will transform enormous traditional and new sources of medical data to enable a personalized, evidence-based approach to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention — and a new model of care.

Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins is an effort to raise $4.5 billion, primarily to support students, faculty, and reserach and interdisiplinary solutions to some of humanity's most important problems. The campaign, supporting both Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine, was publicly launched in May 2013 and is targeted for completion in 2017.


The Twin Sample biopsy needle takes two samples in one pass, so the second can be used for molecular assays. Fresh tissue from real patient tumors is invaluable for mRNA expression or xenograft studies.
