Biology

Doctoral Major Master's Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

The Johns Hopkins Biology Department is home to 25 research laboratories investigating a wide range of biological problems, with the unifying goal of obtaining explanations or models in quantitative and molecular detail. As one of the first biology departments in the United States, it has a long history dating back to the inception of Johns Hopkins University in 1876.

The department emphasizes molecular, cellular, and developmental biology, biochemistry, and biophysics. Department members use the Integrated Imaging Center, the BioNMR center, the X-ray crystallography facility, and many other university resources to pursue their research and teaching objectives.

Biomedical Engineering

Doctoral Major Master's Full-time In-person
  • Whiting School of Engineering
  • School of Medicine

Biomedical engineering applies modern approaches from the experimental life sciences in conjunction with theoretical and computational methods from engineering, mathematics, and computer science to the solution of biomedical problems of fundamental importance, such as human health.

Ranked as the nation’s top graduate program by U.S. News & World Report, biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins offerss students the opportunity to train in the School of Medicine and School of Engineering, and perform research with faculty who are world leaders in their respective fields, including neuroengineering, medical imaging, computational medicine, and cell and tissue engineering.

Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

New fields of scientific inquiry are emerging at a breathtaking pace. Biophysics, with its inherent foundation of integrative science, addresses the mysteries of life using all of the methods available to us through biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, engineering, and computer science. The Program in Molecular Biophysics, established in 1990, provides students with training in both the fundamental principles of biophysics and contemporary advances in the field.

Biophysics and Molecular Biophysics

Doctoral Major Full-time In-person
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

In the 21st century, new fields of scientific inquiry are emerging at a breathtaking pace.  In the biological sciences, emphasis will be increasingly on quantitation and prediction of living systems—precisely the focus of biophysics. Biophysics is a discipline that sits at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computation, and engineering. It is uniquely well suited for the study of biology in the post-genomic era. Besides its role in contributing fundamental understanding of the properties of molecules, cells, and complex biological systems, biophysics is also central to the development of novel medical technologies and to the bioengineering and biopharmaceutical industry.

Biophysics was first established as an independent discipline at Johns Hopkins. The Thomas C. Jenkins Department of Biophysics has a remarkable tradition of excellence in research and teaching and of developing leaders in the scientific community.

The undergraduate major in biophysics constitutes a rigorous program of study that will help students develop the broad set of skills in science, math, and computation necessary to compete in the interdisciplinary environment of modern science, medicine, and engineering.  The biophysics major emphasizes independent thinking and critical reasoning, problem-solving skills, and it teaches students how to move with ease across disciplines.

Doctoral program

The Program in Molecular Biophysics trains students in quantitative molecular biophysics, with both experimental and computational emphasis. The program gives students a strong background in physical chemical principles and methods, in theory and methods of macromolecular structure determination, and structure-based computational analysis. The training faculty reside in the T. C. Jenkins Department of Biophysics, other departments within the Schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering, and in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health in east Baltimore. The coursework in PMB closely reflects the scope described above, focusing primarily on quantitative physical chemistry of biological systems, structure determination and analysis of macromolecules, and computational analysis of biomolecular systems.

Biostatistics

Doctoral Master's Full-time In-person
  • Bloomberg School of Public Health

Johns Hopkins Biostatistics is the oldest department of its kind in the world and has long been considered one of the best.

Biostatistics creates and applies methods for quantitative research in the health sciences. Our faculty conduct research across the spectrum of statistical science, from foundations of inference to the discovery of new methodology to health applications. Our designs and analytic methods enable health scientists and professionals in academia, government, the pharmaceutical industry, medical research, and elsewhere to efficiently acquire knowledge and draw valid conclusions from their ever-expanding sources of information. Our graduates have leadership careers as researchers in academic biostatistics departments, government, and industry.
