The Johns Hopkins University, founded in 1876, is considered the first research university in the U.S. The university’s emphasis on both learning and research, and how each complements the other, revolutionized higher learning. Today, Johns Hopkins remains a leader in both teaching and research. The medical school is regarded as one of the best in the world and is a major recipient of National Institutes of Health research grants. The Applied Physics Laboratory wins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The Bloomberg School of Public Health, the first of its kind in the country, ranks first among public health schools in federal research support.
