Johns Hopkins Catalyst Awards: 2019 Awardees

In June 2019, thirty-three 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. Faculty will use the awards to pursue a wide range of projects, from investigating the redemptive role of emergency response efforts for military organizations in the Middle East, to creating high-performance catalysts with novel materials, to creating a musical composition based on Zadie Smith’s “Speaking in Tongues” lecture about President Obama’s distinctive voice and use of language. Other recipients are investigating treatments and interventions for ovarian cancer and heart failure. One awardee is working to improve postoperative outcomes for older adults. Another is evaluating the nature and rates of Earth’s tectonic changes.

These experts represent twenty-six departments—including Anesthesiology & Critical Care Medicine, Composition, Materials Science and Engineering, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Political Economy, and International Health. We are proud to announce the 2019-2020 Catalyst Cohort.
