This joint effort among doctors Miguel Hernan (Harvard), David Kent (Tufts), Kelley Kidwell (Michigan), Michael Rosenblum (Johns Hopkins), Daniel Scharfstein (Johns Hopkins) and Ravi Varadhan, will create a cutting edge analytic tool kit needed to support the next generation of trials. Topics will include: Sequential, multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) designs (Kidwell) Leveraging baseline covariates to improve the efficiency of randomized trials (Rosenblum) Casual analysis of pragmatic trials (Hernan) Sensitivity analysis for randomized trials … Continue reading

Patient Safety Collaborative


  The Institute for Clinical and Translational Research is working with Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering to establish an Engineering Collaborative for Patient Safety. Its purpose is to bring engineering talent together with to clinicians to solve patient safety issues. Potential benefit to clinician and patients: • Collaboration with Hopkins engineering master students with exceptional talent. Engaging students early represents an opportunity to engage exceptional intellects. • Students have time, energy, and ambition to research issues, identify needs, and pool together resources for solutions. • Direct and concentrated efforts to address patient safety issue(s). This collaborative is a combined … Continue reading

Introduction to Drug Discovery Research


This course deals with various aspects of the drug discovery process including target identification, medicinal chemistry, in vitro and in vivo drug screening methods, pharmacokinetics, drug safety, and intellectual property management. While the main focus of the course is centered on small molecule-based drugs, one lecture covers the principles of biologics-based drugs given the increasing interests in this area. The last two lectures are devoted to case studies in which discovery of particular drugs will be discussed in detail to provide further insights into the process of drug discovery research. Each lecture is given by an expert on that respective subject with many years of drug … Continue reading

Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) K12 AWARD


The Johns Hopkins BIRCWH program (JH-BIRCWH) was established to develop highly qualified, independent investigators to conduct women’s health and sex and gender differences research. These independent investigators will be leaders now and in the future, developing innovative, interdisciplinary programs of research that will improve health and social outcomes for diverse women, and also men, across the lifespan. To achieve that goal, the JH-BIRCWH will: recruit promising and highly motivated junior faculty scholars from within Johns Hopkins University, with priority given to investigators from groups underrepresented in research use a learner-centered and competency-based approach to interdisciplinary career development under the guidance … Continue reading

K-to-R Transition Program


The “K-to-R” Transition Program was implemented in response to the growing need to enhance the transition from mentored career development awards (K’s) to independent awards (R’s). The ICTR’s Training, Education, & Career Development Programs has partnered with the Office of Faculty Development and the Professional Development and Career Office to provide oversight, support, resources, and networking opportunities for K-level mentored awardees.  To address some of the needs and overcome the barriers identified, this program links available resources for preparation of future R grant submissions, including individual or small group mentoring and an annual retreat for engaged mentored awardees. Please contact our program … Continue reading
