Our History

Our Vision and Mission

Hopkins dome at night.

The name Johns Hopkins has become synonymous with excellence in research and patient care. 

Since its opening in 1973, our Cancer Center has led the world in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and new ways to treat it.  The strength of our research and treatment programs was recognized early on by the National Cancer Institute, becoming one of the first to earn comprehensive cancer center status and recognition as a “Center of Excellence.”

In 2001, Sidney Kimmel gave a transformative gift to Johns Hopkins University. In recognition of his extraordinary philanthropy, the cancer center was named in his honor: Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Our Center has active programs in clinical research, laboratory research, education, community outreach, and prevention and control. More on the NCI's Cancer Centers Program.
