In 2014, she was both the first woman and the first Iranian to be honored by mathematics’ highest prize, the Fields Medal. Mirzakhani’s contributions are explained in the film by leading mathematicians and illustrated by animated sequences. Her mathematical colleagues from around the world, as well as former teachers, classmates, and students in Iran today, convey the deep impact of her achievements. The path of her education, success on Iran’s Math Olympiad team, and her brilliant work, make Mirzakhani an ideal role model for girls looking toward careers in science and mathematics.     Secrets of the Surface - official trailer 2020 from Zala Films on Vimeo.   Following the screening, you are invited to join a conversation with CTY's Senior Program Manager for math, Anjula Batra, the film Director, George Paul Csicsery, and Johns Hopkins 2020 President's Frontier Award winner, Emily Riehl. They will discuss the importance of Mirzakhani’s contributions to her field, the significance of her award, and the ways in which women are making their mark in the field of mathematics today.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual March 01, March 1, MondayIn Record Time: COVID-19 Vaccines and FDA Expedited Timelines This lecture will focus on two areas: the first, on the regulatory context of Operation Warp Speed and a corresponding "snapshot" of the COVID-19 therapeutic clinical trials from the Clinical Research Organizations (CRO's) that run them. COVID-19 vaccines have been developed in record time. Despite this, the process has ensured that they meet the quality, safety, and efficacy standards that the public have come to expect from prophylactic vaccines given to healthy people. Two mRNA vaccines received Emergency Use Authorization in December 2020, and more are on the horizon.   The second part of this lecture will bring into context the pivotal strategic thinking of C-level executives in the biotechnology and the CRO industry when faced with a global pandemic and the decision-making process considering the critical need of FDA expedited timelines, potential need for expanded access for emergency use, and clinical site expansion to meet the endpoints of the registered clinical study. This analysis will incorporate two commercial case studies in the public domain, Humanigen (NASDAQ: HGEN) based in Burlingame, California, USA as well as DURECT (NASDAQ: DRRX) in Cupertino, California, USA. Current research being conducted at Humanigen has a focus on acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) while DURECT seeks to understand multi-organ failure resulting from COVID-19.   Nate Hughes, MPH, MPP has been working in the life science industry for almost two decades, and is a writer and public speaker. From 2015-2016, he served as a board member on the Corporate Governance Roundtable for the American College of Preventive Medicine.  In 2018, he facilitated the instalment of Real-Time Scheduling for Kymriah for NOVARTIS in Morris Plains, NJ site, the very first US approved CAR-T therapy, among other global deals. In March, 2020, Nate facilitated the Humanigen Covid-19 mAb Phase 3 study (including site expansion to LATAM), and facilitated the BD side of several deals in the CRO space, including in cell & gene therapy, rare renal, and rare liver disease. He received his Bachelor’s degree from The University of California at Berkeley, his M. Phil degree from Trinity College, Dublin, a MPP from The UCLA Luskin School, and a MPH from The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.    Peter Marks received his graduate degree in cell and molecular biology and his medical degree at New York University and completed Internal Medicine residency and Hematology/Medical Oncology training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He has worked in academic settings teaching and caring for patients and in industry on drug development.  He joined the FDA in 2012 as Deputy Center Director for CBER and became Center Director in January 2016.      covid-19-therapeutic-trials-

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual February 24, February 24, WednesdayTracing the Untraceable: Data and Policy Options for Tracking Homemade Guns Firearm violence is a massive public health problem. Many violence reduction policies rely on firearm background checks and the ability to trace guns used in violence back to their original source. An increasingly popular type of gun, a homemade, untraceable gun, is subverting these policies. Often called “ghost guns,” these guns can be constructed at home using parts or kits that can be purchased without a background check. Once completed, these guns function just like standard guns, but they cannot be traced if recovered by law enforcement. Data is limited, but the purchase, manufacture, and use of ghost guns seems to be increasing. In this session, we will discuss untraceable guns, the need for reliable data, and state and federal policy options. Alex McCourt is an assistant scientist in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He is the Director of Legal Research for the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy and is core faculty in the Center for Law and the Public’s Health and the Center for Injury Research and Policy. Trained as a public health lawyer, he combines legal research with empirical methods to study instances in which law plays a role in shaping the public’s health.
