The Johns Hopkins Internship in Brain Science Program (JHIBS): Project Pipeline Baltimore

The long-term goal of the JHIBS program is to significantly increase the pool of qualified under-represented professional candidates from Baltimore in the neurosciences and mental health medicine through an eight-week summer research and enrichment experience that targets high school juniors and seniors. The program will provide the necessary exposure, knowledge, and career-long mentoring, to help propel students toward a trajectory as a STEM professional. The program has been in existence for seven years funded by the Cohen Foundation and jointly this year with a grant from the National Institutes of Mental Health.
