In 1989, the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research was established.

It serves as an academic bridge between the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Bloomberg School of Public Health to conduct clinical, epidemiologic, and translational research of the highest quality. The Welch Center showcases how successful interdisciplinary collaboration leads to landmark research studies, as well as meaningful community and policy innovations.

An Alliance Between Public Health and Medicine

Great teams produce great science. By fostering collaborative science that involves research-oriented clinicians and research method experts, we conduct high-impact studies that advance the health of populations and people.

At the Welch Center, we value the talent and input of our students, staff, and faculty – establishing a collegial and highly stimulating environment that promotes the professional development of all.

"The Welch Center is a fantastic environment to train because of its people. The faculty are not only world-class researchers, but deeply invested in teaching and mentoring students. My fellow students are not only brilliant, but incredibly supportive of one another. The staff also go above and beyond every day. Sometimes it’s hard to believe I ended up in such an amazing place."

- Kathryn Foti, former trainee
