Celebrating and nurturing the community of Johns Hopkins women whose academic ingenuity will change the world.

The Johns Hopkins community is rich with female pioneers in myriad fields striving to impact the world. Yet women are underrepresented in commercialization here and across the academic community.

JHTV is eager to support women across campus in bringing their research to fruition through applied research, translation, and entrepreneurship. Learn about resources available nationally and across Johns Hopkins campus.

Join the movement.

On May 11, JHTV will host a virtual breakfast chat with gene therapy pioneer Dr. Kathy High  who will tell us her story: that of a clinician researcher whose accomplishments in basic, translational, and clinical investigation include the founding of Spark Therapeutics, the $4.8B company behind Luxturna®, the first gene therapy for genetic disease to obtain regulatory approval in the U.S. and Europe. In conversation with JHTV’s Christy Wyskiel, Dr. High will reflect on academic-industry collaborations, academic venture creation, and the future of gene therapy.
