Provost’s Panel on Innovation wraps up lecture series

What is the best environment for creative and innovative thinking? In what ways does the academic culture promote innovation? Are innovative ideas best found within disciplines or at the intersection of disciplines? Is innovation the result of serendipity and flashes of insight, or the result of effort and hard work?

The 2011–12 Provost’s Lecture Series, focused on innovation, culminates next week in a panel discussion hosted by Provost Lloyd B. Minor to address these and other questions.
Panelists are Lisa Cooper, professor of medicine and director of the Johns Hopkins Center to Eliminate Cardiovascular Health Disparities; Lisa Feigenson, associate professor of psychological and brain sciences; Jerry Krill, assistant director for science and technology at APL; and Charles Limb, associate professor of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery, a faculty member at Peabody and a Provost’s Fellow.

The event will be held at 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, in room 150E of the Armstrong Medical Education Building, East Baltimore. To RSVP, email ProvostRSVP@jhu.edu.
