The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) is one of Johns Hopkins University’s premier research institutes on the Homewood Campus. Established in 2012, HEMI includes faculty members from the Whiting School of Engineering, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences the Applied Physics Laboratory in collaboration with numerous associates from academia, government, and industry. Our team of globally recognized researchers embraces the challenge of solving extremely complex research problems. This allows us not only to develop and provide the tools needed to address today’s problems but also to lay the groundwork needed to build the basic science needed to address future threats and opportunities.

MISSION: The mission of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute is to provide global intellectual leadership to advance the fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions and demonstrating extreme performance.

VISION: HEMI develops the science and technology that protects people, structures, and the planet.
