The robotics lab at Johns Hopkins’ School of Computer Science and Engineering gets a shout-out in the January 17 issue of Time magazine. The article, “Where the jobs are,” discusses the sectors for job growth in the current economy. Johns Hopkins has established training programs to better match the skills of Baltimore residents with the requirement of the sophisticated bioengineering jobs now being created.
The photo in the article shows Professor Russ Taylor’s robotics lab at Hackermann Hall on Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. The building, with its open bays and lofted lab spaces, includes a robotic surgical suite for the development of medical technologies. It was completed by Shepley Bulfinch as part of the Decker Quad complex and opened in 2007.
