  • The third cohort of the China-STEM program have returned from Nanjing! Ian Miller (China-STEM 2014, Health Sciences Track) wrote the following about the program: “Participating in the Hopkins China STEM program was a unique and invaluable opportunity. The tailored scientific language training I received and the connections I made here are priceless.  I have spent the early stages of my career wondering how to best integrate my interests in language and science.  This program offers an outstanding solution.  Through its framework I was able to make meaningful connections with Chinese peers and even establish initial collaborative research projects.” Find out more about the program here
