Hopkins Medicine Distinguished Speaker Lecture. Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.


The following is a description of the Distinguished Speakers Series: “The Distinguished Speaker Series was established by a group of medical students at Johns Hopkins to inform and inspire medical scientists, clinicians, public health leaders, and students through scholarly exchange with the world’s foremost visionaries and thinkers. Our inaugural event brought together seven recipients of the MacArthur “Genius Grant” for a lively dialogue on the ways in which creative minds engage the public. Since then, we have hosted Lasker Award recipient Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, noted bioethicist Dr. Charles Bosk, and Dr. Francoise Barré-Sinoussi, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and co-discoverer of HIV. Our most recent events featured Dr. K. Anders Ericsson, cognitive psychologist and expert on expertism, Dr. Robert Langer, head of the largest biomedical engineering laboratory in the world, and five exceptional faculty at Johns Hopkins presenting their personal and professional journeys in medicine.”
