The Crossroads panel discussion series focuses on taking an interdisciplinary approach to a specific research topic or theme.  At each session, a panel of JHU undergraduate researchers are invited to share their projects and engage in a discussion looking for common threads, new ways of seeing data and outcomes, and opportunities for collaboration in the otherwise disparate work.  The discussions are moderated by faculty, post docs and grad students whose work is associated with the event’s theme.
