Data to Insights: Addressing Challenges of the Microbiome
A mysterious, complex and largely unknown universe exists within and on you. Every day, as you go about your routine, colossal quantities of microbes that form your unique microbiome are aiding or obstructing your functions. What role can this universe, the human microbiome, play in preventing disease and treating illness? This question has spurred unique in-human research and development strategies, which deliver an abundance of data. Now, what do we do with these data? How do we make meaningful insights and unlock solutions to our health? How do we turn code into tailored interventions and treatments ready for the market?

A touch that makes all the difference – exploring the importance of sensory stimulation in infant mental health and cognitive development
Johnson & Johnson is dedicated to help babies around the globe benefit from the groundbreaking, science-based products that Johnson & Johnson has created since launching its iconic line of baby products in 1894. During Infant Mental Health Awareness week we are discussing the importance of sensory stimulation in infant brain development
Today, the Smithsonian opened its much-anticipated, three-year exhibit “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World” at the National Museum of Natural Science with support from Johnson & Johnson Innovation, just as another Ebola outbreak is heating up in Democratic Republic of Congo. And earlier this week, we kicked off an exciting new collaboration with the British Science Museum and Royal Society at the Science Meets the Media event and celebrated science journalism at the Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) annual awards.
Science made in Africa – The Next Einstein Forum 2018
The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is an initiative launched by the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in 2013, in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Innovation to showcase science in Africa and to give some of the most promising scientists from the African continent a voice. The 2018 meeting took place in Kigali, Rwanda. Attendees included leaders from the fields of science, policy and civil society, and also heads of states such as H.E. President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, and President Macky Sall of Senegal.
