Johns Hopkins Catalyst Awards: 2018 Awardees

In June 2018, thirty-two early career faculty members were selected to receive Johns Hopkins Catalyst Awards, an honor that is accompanied by a $75,000 grant, mentoring opportunities, and institutional recognition. Among the wide range of research and creative endeavors that the awards will support are improving pain management for people with sickle-cell disease; decreasing the opioid overdose mortality rate through novel tools for public health practitioners and policymakers; and writing the authorized biography of the late Anthony Hecht, a U.S. poet laureate, WWII veteran, Holocaust witness, and Pulitzer Prize recipient. Another awardee is developing an economic framework to assess the social value of pharmaceutical innovation.

These experts represent two dozen distinct fields, including otolaryngology, economics, civil engineering, mathematics, the writing seminars, and musicology. We are proud to announce the 2018-2019 Catalyst Cohort.
