Excellent collaboration opportunities exist within the Department and throughout the top ranked Johns Hopkins Schools of Public Health, Engineering, and Medicine, as well as other local partners including the Kennedy Krieger Institute, the Center for Women's Health, Sex and Gender Research and the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes Data Analysis Center (https://www.jhsph.edu/departments/epidemiology/echo/), which are conveniently located on the East Baltimore Campus.
