Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is a private American university located in Baltimore, Maryland. It also has campuses in Washington, D.C. Bologna, Italy, Singapore and Nanjing, China. It owes its name to Johns Hopkins, a wealthy entrepreneur who bequeathed 7 million dollars to the university on his death.

One of the most prestigious universities in the United States (especially for its faculties of medicine and public health, as well as its school of international affairs), the institution defines itself as the country's leading "research university". At the beginning of its history, it was mainly inspired by the University of Heidelberg and the German educational model of Wilhelm von Humboldt. In 2019, 39 Nobel Prize winners have their names associated with the university.
