When the Johns Hopkins University was founded in 1876, it became the first university in the United States to stress graduate education and original research—an emphasis that remains today. The School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering are located on the Homewood campus, a wooded 140 acre estate in north Baltimore. Homewood is easily accessible to the Medical Institutions by free, frequent shuttle bus service. The Carnegie Institutions of Washington, Department of Embryology, a leading center for the study of developmental biology, is also located on the Homewood campus.
