Johns Hopkins Systems Institute

In April of 2011, a major new research initiative--the Johns Hopkins Systems Institute--was launched at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). This interdisciplinary research facility, based in JHU’s Whiting School of Engineering, will include faculty from across the university.

The Systems Institute will take a multidisciplinary approach to re-engineering entire systems of national importance, including medicine, health care delivery, network-enabled systems, information security, national infrastructure, and education. In addition to engineering faculty, the institute will tap into the expertise of researchers from the university’s three health professions schools, Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing; from the schools of Arts and Sciences, Business and Education; and from JHU’s Applied Physics Laboratory, already one of the nation’s leading centers of systems engineering.
