One of the oldest universities in the United States is Johns Hopkins University. In 2018, he took 17th place in the ranking of the best educational institutions of the world QS World University Rankings.
In the city of Baltimore (USA, Maryland) entrepreneur John Hopkins in the mid-18th century, at his own expense, founded a university.
From the very beginning, the mission of the university was research, and the main focus was postgraduate education and support for research teachers. Two years after its foundation, the publishing house was opened, which continues its work to the present day. The continuing education program began its implementation in 1909, and in 1916 the first public health school in the USA was established here. The University Department of Applied Physics was the main state defense contractor in 1942. And since 2000, the active development of university departments has begun: new institutes, laboratories, schools of business and pedagogy have appeared.
Information on the training program can be found on the official website of the school.
Since 1931, the university has laid the tradition of holding Gordon conferences. It is worth noting that the journal Science publishes summaries of conferences that are now being held not only at this university, but also in other countries. The works of university researchers are among the most frequently cited, and to provide scientific research, the university lists billions of dollars.
The famous philosopher Arthur Onken Lovejoy was a university professor and it was there that he created his most significant works. And Professor Johns Hopkins University Hamilton Otanel Smith made a revolutionary discovery of the restriction enzymes, for which he received the Nobel Prize.
Researchers at the university proved the existence of dark matter; found that nicotine suppresses the ability to experience pleasure; found a way to normalize the memory and learning disabilities inherent in Down syndrome; have developed improved means of matching DNA; discovered a compound that can be used to deprive a cancer tumor of building elements; have made a breakthrough in the study of Parkinson's disease, establishing that the PARIS protein contributes to the development of the most common form of the disease.
In addition, university researchers have found the virus ATCV-1, the so-called nonsense virus. They proved that this virus can make a person stupider.
Here are taught 52 basic and 42 additional directions. The Johns Hopkins University has ensured that every student receives enough attention from the instructors. Therefore, classes are conducted in small groups of 15 people, and the majority of students conduct independent research in collaboration with leading scientists.
It was within the walls of the Johns Hopkins research clinic that such specializations as neurosurgery and cardiac surgery began. University medical and engineering studies receive multimillion-dollar grants.
In the library of George Peabody (which was opened in 1878), many rare books of the XVIII-early XX centuries are kept. In addition, the library is one of the most beautiful in the world.
The buildings of the university were seen in the cinema. A well-known picture of "Social Network" was filmed on the Homewood campus. This is not surprising, since the buildings of the university are in incredibly picturesque places.
