2018 Awardees 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 […]

Courses for Translational Researchers


Johns Hopkins University has partnered with Cousera to develop a series of online data science courses taught by faculty members from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.  The data science specialization covers the concepts and tools needed throughout the entire data science pipeline, from asking the right kinds of questions to making inferences and publishing results. Students will learn to: formulate context relevant questions and hypotheses to drive data scientific research identify, obtain and transform a data set to make it suitable for the production of statistical evidence communicated in written form build models based on new […]

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 […]

Science: Out of the Box


Why is cancer so hard to treat—and what new strategies are researchers considering? What do cells do when their DNA gets tangled up? How do brain cells build connections to each other? Our researchers use toys to help answer these and other questions in the video series Science: Out of the Box.   Immunotherapy and Antibodies | Slaying Lung Cancer Medical oncologist Julie Brahmer, M.D., explains how immunotherapy works as a tool in treating lung cancer. Using toys and finger paints, she demonstrates how the immune system attacks cancer cells. Dr. Brahmer discusses why immunotherapy is a promising new treatment […]
