The Johns Hopkins University

“What are we aiming at?”

That’s the question our first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, asked at his inauguration in 1876. What is this place all about, exactly? His answer:

“The encouragement of research . . . and the advancement of individual scholars, who by their excellence will advance the sciences they pursue, and the society where they dwell.”

Gilman believed that teaching and research go hand in hand—that success in one depends on success in the other—and that a modern university must do both well. He also believed that sharing our knowledge and discoveries would help make the world a better place.

In a proof-of-principle study, a team of physicians and bioinformatics experts at Johns Hopkins reports they were able to diagnose or rule out suspected brain infections using so called next-generation genetic sequencing of brain tissue samples.
The results of an American presidential election—from a population of 220 million eligible voters with no federal ID cards—has unparalleled implications for global politics.
A new study supports the idea that high doses of cocaine can cause brain cells to cannibalize themselves—but researchers have also identified an experimental compound that could be a possible antidote, able to prevent the damage.
Researchers from John Hopkins University study groundwater in South Dakota’s badlands to determine if low exposures to arsenic are harmful over the long haul.
An undergraduate engineering student at Johns Hopkins University joined a research team which discovered that a previous assumption about the flight dynamics of insects was inaccurate. Their findings have implications for biologists who study how insects fly.
