A Day in the Lab Academy Researchers

Academy attendees will visit Johns Hopkins University for ½ day. They will learn about the translation pipeline (from foundational to applied research to practice), visit two laboratories to learn how foundational and applied science is conducted, and explore how such research may inform classroom practice. (All attendees will participate in the Research in Action Day; each attendee will select two labs of interest to visit).
