Description

Johns Hopkins hosts one of ten Biocontainment Units (BCUs) around the country. They stand ready at all times to treat patients with highly infectious diseases while ensuring our healthcare workers and the surrounding community stays safe. Originally built to provide treatment for patients with Ebola, the Johns Hopkins BCU is leading the response of Johns Hopkins in treating COVID-19 patients while simultaneously preparing for the next possible pandemic. Join Brian Garibaldi, medical director of the BCU, and some of the BCU staff to learn about pandemic preparedness.

Hopkins on the Hill is a biennial showcase of the range, value, and impact of federally funded research and programming at Johns Hopkins University. This year, we're taking our science into your homes and on your screens. Hear from early career researchers and practitioners to learn about their work in tracking and combatting COVID-19, education, space exploration, health care, extreme materials, climate change, and more.
