Many Johns Hopkins students find their paths with the help of passionate faculty and staff from around the university. This month, the Homewood Career Center celebrated hundreds of faculty and staff who were nominated by current Homewood students as top supporters of their dreams, life planning, and careers.

Feilim Mac Gabhann, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute for Computational Medicine, was nominated for a Career Champion Award, which includes a gift card and an official certificate.

Students say Mac Gabhann is there for them, regardless of the path they’re considering. “I had never given a single thought to doing a PhD, but after taking his class and joining his lab as an undergraduate, my idea of what scientific research is has drastically changed,” said one student. “His steady mentorship and enthusiasm for science constantly inspire me and have made a tremendous difference in my career journey, from undergrad all the way till now, a few years into my PhD in his lab.”

Other students said he supported them while they studied for the MCAT, even if it meant they had to take time away from doing research or completing their work for him.

The full list of all nominated champions who have made a difference in student’s lives can be found on the Career Center website.
