The Johns Hopkins University was founded in 1876 as America’s first research university on the principle that discovery and learning are inextricably linked. As Johns Hopkins’ first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, said in his inaugural address, “What are we aiming at? .... 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.”

Today, Johns Hopkins is one of the world’s premier centers of discovery. In 2008, our research was conducted by more than 6,500 faculty and scientists working in 120 countries with total revenues exceeding $1.6 billion. Johns Hopkins faculty and students published more than 3,500 scientific papers and books. Hopkins researchers filed 500 patents, disclosed 305 new inventions, started 12 new companies and generated income or equity returns of $11 million. Steeped in the Gilman tradition, research remains central to the educational experience of the university’s 5,700 undergraduates and 6,500 full-time graduate students.
