Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines and Devices

The Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines, and Devices community is lead by co-leaders Barbara Slusher and Clifford Weiss.

The mission of the Drugs/Vaccines/Biologics/Devices Translational Research Community (TRC) is to stimulate highly innovative researchers and research programs that translate laboratory findings into new drug, device, or biologic therapeutics for human disease. We have been working to establish a vibrant and collaborative translational community for scientists across the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences who are conducting research in these areas.

The goals of the Drugs/Vaccines/Biologics/Devices TRC are to:

  1. Identify, support and enhance institutional capacity within the drug, device, or biologic therapeutics translational research space
  2. Improve the rigor, depth, breadth, and cross-disciplinary collaboration among Hopkins scientists, as well as interested community partners and stake holders
  3. Support existing researchers with needed equipment, resources, and educational support to aide in the realization of above goals
