Johns Hopkins Science Policy Group

Since 2016, the Johns Hopkins Science Policy Group (JHSPG) has led the effort to advocate for evidence-based policies that advance science and safeguard public health. JHSPG is comprised of members of the Johns Hopkins University research and medical communities, which includes graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, healthcare professionals, and faculty at the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and School of Nursing. JHSPG develops science policy coverage and commentary that promotes civic engagement and policy literacy in scientists, creates training modules, tool-kits and science communications resources for our research advocates, coordinates advocacy events around the STEM legislative agenda at both the local and federal level, engages with science policy, advocacy, and communication professionals via an invited speaker series, and provides career development opportunities for trainees interested in science policy and advocacy.
