The visit was part of a 5-day tour that included visits to three Hopkins campuses (the Medical Campus, Homewood, and Montgomery County Campus) and a seminar on biosimilars at the JG Business Link International office in Germantown.
"The students were very excited to see and interact with the lab and to hear from Kris [Obom, Program Director for the Master of Science in Bioinformatics and for the Master of Science in Biotechnology program]," said Wonro Lee, CEO of JG Business Link International.
The visit was coordinated by the State of Maryland Business Office - Korea, the Korea representative for the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.
