What's Our Mission?
To create a community of educators, students, researchers and entrepreneurs where collaboration fosters academic achievement, scientific discovery and economic development.

What's Here? The Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County Campus offers part-time graduate courses predominately in biotechnology. Students attend classes in the evenings and on Saturdays, enabling them to hold full-time jobs during the day. Depending on the degree area, students can fully complete their coursework in Montgomery County. Other students take some courses in Baltimore and/ or online.

Johns Hopkins Montgomery County Campus is also a site for the popular Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Geared toward retirees, these non-credit classes cover topics including opera, literature, history, politics and more.

The campus is home to approximately 35 research companies and entrepreneurs. Scientists on campus are studying cervical cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, cell therapy, proteins and other health issues. Other companies focus on technology, medical devices and consulting services. The Rockville Science Center's administrative offices are located here. Start-up companies, second-stage businesses and more established companies are welcome.

Where Are We? Located minutes outside of Washington D.C., the Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County Campus boasts an ideal setting for academics and for research and corporate endeavors. The campus is close to I-270, the Shady Grove Metro Station on the Red Line and a Metro bus route.
