Joel Bader and Winston Timp receive JHU Discovery Awards

With support from Johns Hopkins University's Discovery Awards, many young Johns Hopkins scholars will be empowered to use the power of partnerships to fuel important discoveries and solve global challenges. Selected to receive the award from the Department of Biomedical Engineering was Joel Bader and Winston Timp. The new Discovery Awards are part of a $15 million commitment to cross-university, faculty-led research over three years. Twenty-three teams were among the first chosen for the program, each composed of members from at least two Johns Hopkins divisions.

Associate Professor Joel Bader was selected for his collaborative project: High throughput discovery and domestication of bacteriophages for human microbiome engineering.

Assistant Professor Winston Timp will be furthering research on his initiative, “Sequencing-based transcription factor binding quantification for synthetic biology.”

They will receive up to $75,000 each to pursue their research. Congratulations to both! Learn more on The Hub.
