Clinical Research Informatics Core

The Clinical Research Informatics Core concentrates on identifying gaps in current research IT services within the Johns Hopkins environment and creating strategies for filling these gaps. By using CTSA funds to leverage institutional resources to provide for these needs as identified by investigators and the committee, the entire research enterprise is benefiting through both the improvement of existing resources and the creation of new, enterprise-wide tools.
