In speed-dating style, faculty and students will have the opportunity to meet and potentially collaborate with Baltimore-based community organizations, who have identified research needs, and become aware of funding resources for collaborative research. 

Where: Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of
Public Health, Feinstone Hall E2030,
615 N. Wolfe Street, Baltimore, MD 21205

When: Friday, October 12, 2018 | 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.

How Does Community-Driven Research Day Work?

Community projects selected to participate will each have a table to display information about their organization and research priorities. In speed-dating style, interested researchers will rotate throughout the room at prescribed times to learn more about each organization and see if there are mutually beneficial opportunities for collaborating. Attendees will have additional opportunity to discuss collaborations during the networking session. Light refreshments will be provided

The deadline to have your information included in the program booklet was Friday, September 21 at 5:00 pm, but we still encourage you to register and participate.
