Get ready for the 14th Annual Discovery Awards for Science, Technology and Innovation. The brightest will be awarded in the following categories: Professional of Distinction, Emerging Professional, Innovation and Science Champion. Additionally, we will give out a Youth Award and induct two outstanding professional into Science Hall of Fame.

More than ever, the answers to the most challenging questions cannot be accomplished entirely within one academic discipline, or even one division. The Johns Hopkins Discovery Awards provide grant awards to cross-divisional teams, comprised of faculty and/or non-faculty members from at least two schools or affiliates of the university, who are poised to arrive at important discoveries or creative works. The expectation is that these awards will spark new, synergistic interactions between investigators across the institution and lead to work of the highest quality and impact. These awards are not intended to support already established projects or minimal extensions of ongoing research or professional programs.
