The next generation of scientists recognized at Johns Hopkins

The best of the best. The cream of the crop. Clichs may accurately describe the winners of this year's Young Investigators' Day awards at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, but their work is anything but run of the mill.

Now in its 25th year, Young Investigators' Day recognizes the substantial contributions of all graduate school and medical students, postdoctoral fellows and medical residents and fellows throughout the school of medicine and hospital by rewarding the advances of some of Hopkins' most talented researchers in training.

This year's winning projects have brought a new anti-cancer drug to clinical trial, shown a common diagnostic observation not to be diagnostic at all and turned more than one scientific field on its head. The award recipients will present their study results and accept their awards April 11, beginning at 4 p.m. in Mountcastle Auditorium in the medical school's Preclinical Teaching Building.

"Young investigators are the heart and soul of the research enterprise," says Paul Talalay, M.D., a driving force in the creation of Young Investigators' Day back in 1978 and a continuing supporter. "Each year we take part in an extraordinary intellectual feast, really, in which our young investigators tell the larger Hopkins community about their discoveries. So many wonderful new ideas are presented, and a sense of happy excitement surrounds it."

The results of more than a few of the recognized projects have been or are about to be published in leading journals such as Cell, Science, Nature, The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine. But while publication in such journals validates the efforts of a budding scientist or research physician, recognition within Hopkins -- not to mention the award checks -- can be an important boost for young investigators.

"Having my work accepted for publication is a great feeling, but receiving recognition from people I know and have a great deal
