Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships (BDPs) were established as part of a $350 million investment by Michael Bloomberg, JHU Class of 1964, to Johns Hopkins University in 2013. Fifty faculty members, ten from Johns Hopkins University and forty recruited from institutions worldwide, will be chosen for these endowed professorships based on their research, teaching, service, and leadership records.[1][2][3] The program is directed and managed by Johns Hopkins University Vice Provost for Research, Dr. Denis Wirtz.[4] As of February 2020, 47[5] of the 50 Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships have been announced.[6][7][8]

Purpose[edit]

The BDPs will create interdisciplinary connections and collaborations across Johns Hopkins University, train and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and strengthen the university's leadership in research fields of international interest.[2][6][9] Each of the BDPs will be appointed in at least two divisions or disciplines.[10][11] The program aims to bridge traditional research disciplines in order to tackle complex problems such as cancer, urban poverty, and health disparities.[12]
