Population Center, Hopkins

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 unique among NICHD-funded centers in having a large majority of its faculty associates from health institutions (Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing). From its inception, the vision underlying the HPC has been the highest quality research, resulting from interactions among population researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, aided by state of the art research infrastructure. Today, the HPC serves more than 50 research associates from the east-Baltimore medical campus and the Homewood arts and sciences campus.
