The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents all Ph.D. and Master’s students at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Accordingly, the GSA acts as a liaison between the graduate student body and various University entities to ensure student needs are being fulfilled. The GSA offers many other services that aim to improve graduate student life.
This past April, graduate students in the School of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing who successfully completed their doctoral board exams and progressed to candidacy in the fall of 2019 were awarded white coats. Achieving candidacy is an important milestone in the PhD journey, and we were thrilled to have a virtual ceremony to celebrate our students!

Lexi Rindone recently published a ﬁrst-author manuscript in Nature Communications, titled, “Quantitative 3D imaging of the cranial microvascular environment at single-cell resolution.” Her work focused on developing an imaging platform to create 3D maps of blood vessels and stem cells in the mouse skull during postnatal growth, healing, and remodeling. These ﬁndings provide fundamental insight into how blood vessels interact with stem cells in the skull and will enable more targeted studies into the mechanisms of skull bone pathologies and regeneration.
