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.
Join the movement.
