About the Hub

We've been doing some thinking — quite a bit, actually — about all the things that go on at Johns Hopkins. Discovering the glue that holds the universe together, for example. Or unraveling the mysteries of Alzheimer's disease. Or studying butterflies in flight to fine-tune the construction of aerial surveillance robots. Heady stuff, and a lot of it.

In fact, Johns Hopkins does so much, in so many places, that it's hard to wrap your brain around it all. It's too big, too disparate, too far-flung.

We created the Hub to be the news center for all this diverse, decentralized activity, a place where you can see what's new, what's important, what Johns Hopkins is up to that's worth sharing. It's where smart people (like you) can learn about all the smart stuff going on here.

At the Hub, you might read about cutting-edge cancer research or deep-trench diving vehicles or bionic arms. About the psychology of hoarders or the delicate work of restoring ancient manuscripts or the mad motor-skills brilliance of a guy who can solve a Rubik's Cube in under eight seconds.

There's no telling what you'll find here because there's no way of knowing what Johns Hopkins will do next. But when it happens, this is where you'll find it.

Welcome. Have a look around. Come back often. We hope you see something you like. We think you will.
