In 1968, the entire advanced capitalist economy of France was virtually shut down by the spontaneous May Uprising, during which almost a quarter of the entire population of the country was on strike at its apex.

Here’s the scenario: you’re at an off-campus party, late at night, and want to get home within the safe confines of a Blue Jay Shuttle. You call, make it outside within two minutes of the shuttle’s scheduled arrival time, and wind up chasing the van down the street as it flashes by, not stopping for anything or anyone.

It’s been one year since I tracked the medical and emotional developments within the ALS community through one man: the late John Anderson. And one year ago, the community was boiling over with new discovery, with passionate people ready to conquer this disease that is understood by so few. It was a community on the brink.

He’s down to earth, loves jazz, was introduced to biophysics through “Fringe,” and every now and then plays video games. He learned about parabolas playing Halo 3 and says the game was a critical part of his development. He plays basketball and can dunk, but you won’t hear that from him.
What’s more is that this upcoming fall he will be contributing to biophysics research in Cambridge as a Chemistry graduate student, thanks to the Marshall Scholarship. Quenton Bubb is a Biophysics major of the Hopkins class of 2016, graduating a semester early, and on the MD/ PHD track. He was awarded the United Negro College Fund / Merck (UNCF/Merck) Scholarship his junior year and the Marshall Scholarship his senior year, resulting from his contribution to research that seeks to understand the process of protein folding – a process that is relevant to diseases such as ALS(Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes and Creutzfeldt-Jakob’s disease.

It is a blustery and bleak day outside Clark Hall at Johns Hopkins University, but inside, students are working on something big and bright on the horizon. Under the fluorescents of one classroom ceiling students are 3-D printing, programming, soldering things together; it is a symphony of movement in the orchestra of prostheses, artificial limbs for amputees. The soldering iron hums, the solder sizzles and the printer buzzes all in perfect harmony. This complex rhythm is the coming together of research into a sensor database that will lead to new, unprecedented technology in prosthetic devices. In this lab, the students hope to meld technological data with brain signals in prosthetic machinery, like no one has ever done before.

Confused faces adorned the original inhabitants of a Brody Atrium study room one sunny Tuesday afternoon when freshmen students Tamara Villalon, Daniel Park, and Jane Shin barged in and promptly sat down to began studying.
