Funding for travel to JASMed 2014 in Baltimore
We urge students whose papers are accepted to seek financial support from their home institutions to participate in the seminar. We hope that a limited amount of travel support will be made available to students whose home departments are not able to subsidize their travel; however, we are uncertain as to the extent and availability of such funding at this time.
Information about availability of funding and how to apply will be sent to those whose proposals are accepted for the program.

Getting to Baltimore
Baltimore is served by Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), You can take the MARC train or the MTA Light Rail from BWI to stops downtown for only a few dollars during the day (the MARC still runs until around 9:00 PM, but service is most frequent around rush hour), or you can take a taxi or airport shuttle for slightly faster (and more expensive) service. Normal taxi fare to/from the airport is around $40. Various shuttle services operate door-to-door transport to and from BWI.
Amtrak trains come in to Baltimore’s Penn Station. Once there, it is easiest to take a taxi (about $10 to the East Baltimore medical campus), but you can also catch the Johns Hopkins Shuttle (Homewood-Peabody-JHMI) that connects the Homewood campus and the East Baltimore medical campus. If you are headed north from Penn Station to the Homewood Campus, the shuttle stop is located on Charles Street on the west side of Penn Station. If you are going to the medical campus, the shuttle stop is on St Paul Street to the east side of Penn Station. You can download the current shuttle schedule here.
