If you’ve been following the JHSPH Instagram Account (johnshopkinssph), then you probably saw the beautiful picture from April 2, 2017 of the Bloomberg School lit up in blue lights. While April 2 was World Autism Awareness Day and April is National Autism Awareness Month, Autism research is a part of daily life here at JHSPH.
The Wendy Klag Center for Autism & Developmental Disabilities promotes research and education regarding the origins, detection, measurement and prevention of conditions that affect behavioral, socioemotional and/or cognitive development. As one of the centers and institutes affiliated with JHSPH, the Wendy Klag Center offers funding for student and post-doctoral research projects, student travel awards and internship placement. If the mission and research of the Wendy Klag Center are of interest to you, be sure to take a look at the opportunities available to Bloomberg School students.
