The Hopkins Population Center (HPC) was established in 1971 with a mandate to stimulate and facilitate interdisciplinary population research throughout the Johns Hopkins University.
The HPC is an established, interdisciplinary research center that has been supported by NICHD for four decades, first as a P30 Center and more recently as an R24 Population Research Infrastructure Program. It is unique among population centers in that the great majority of its faculty associates are based in the Hopkins health institutions, namely the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing.
One of the main goals of the HPC is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration across Hopkins schools and campuses. It has offices on both the Medical campus (where Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing are based) and the Homewood Campus (where Arts and Sciences is based).
