Navy Recognizes Critical Contributions of Johns Hopkins APL Team
Prior to his retirement, APL welcomed the former Direct Reporting Program Manager, AUKUS Integration and Acquisition Office Rear Admiral David Goggins (USN ret.) on June 29 for a visit to recognize the contributions of APL staff members to developing and successfully fielding new technological advances that bolster our nation’s undersea capabilities.
Tiny but Mighty Lunar Rover Moves One Step Closer to Launch
In 2024, a small rover is set to roam the Moon, collecting critical data to help scientists better understand characteristics of the lunar surface. The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, recently received the rover from commercial partner Lunar Outpost. The rover is a key element of NASA’s Lunar Vertex payload suite.
Improving Patient Safety Outcomes With Precision Medicine
A collaboration between Johns Hopkins APL and Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore is applying data science expertise to combat preventable harms in the health care system, using the Precision Medicine Analytics Platform.
Johns Hopkins APL Restores Cold Sensation in Amputees’ Phantom Limbs
APL researchers have developed one of the world’s smallest, most intense refrigeration devices. The adhesive bandage-like device mimics the body’s natural and rapid ability to sense temperature, and bioengineers at the Lab are now using it to help amputees perceive a sense of cold in their phantom limbs.
