Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network (JHCRN)

The Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network (JHCRN), founded in 2009, is an integrated network of select academic and community-based medical institutions established within the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

The JHCRN is a regional translational research organization linking a preeminent academic medical center with a diverse network of community based health care delivery systems. We collaborate with both the private and public sector to more rapidly and cost effectively expedite scientific discovery through clinical trials and comparative effectiveness research to improve the care and health of patients.
