Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente Collaboration Pilot Awards

At this time, we are not accepting applications.


The Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente Research Collaboration Committee seeks to fund research projects that highlight the effective synergy of the Johns Hopkins Medicine and Kaiser Permanente collaboration in tackling the complex and intriguing questions vexing both health systems. Research projects within this program should best represent initial research that leverages the unique capabilities of  Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente as learning health systems.

Projects are generally pilot projects that may expand into more complex research inquiries and proposals in the future. Funded projects will be managed by two co-Principal Investigators (PIs); one from Johns Hopkins and one from Kaiser Permanente. If an investigator has an idea for a project but does not know a potential research collaborator/colleague, the leaders at both institutions will endeavor to make introductions on their behalf.


The program is for 12-month projects that are non-renewable. Funding is available for up to four projects with a total of $75,000/project. No indirect costs are allowed. Funding will not start any sooner than May 1, 2024, pending Institutional Review Board approval.


Please view the request for applications, the Johns Hopkins Kaiser Permanente Program Overview or visit the Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States/Johns Hopkins Medicine Research Collaboration Program – Mid-Atlantic Permanente Research Institute website for a full description of the program as well as funding priorities, program objectives, eligibility, and guidelines.
