The ICTR laboratories provide coordinated help across several related programs, all focused on the foundational components required to effectively translate new drugs, biologics, vaccines, devices, biomarkers and diagnostics into clinical trials and eventually clinical practice.
This lab offers:
- Biologic product development and testing
- Consultative support for biologic development
- Preclinical testing to clinical production for early phase clinical testing
- Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) facility and expertise to produce and maintain (stability testing
- Cell lines
- Gene vectors

The Cardiovascular Imaging Laboratory provides echocardiographic and carotid imaging for approved CRU protocols, as well as measurement of endothelial function and arterial stiffness.
Offers 87 distinct assays of clinical chemical endpoints and biomarkers to support ICTR research protocols and is designed to serve investigators at all clinical research unit locations.
The Imaging Translational Technology Core (Imaging TTC) facilitates one-on-one consultation with imaging experts for study design, imaging protocol development and study implementation.
The core facilitates integrated use of imaging resources in translational projects and clinical trials and offers research imaging management infrastructure through the Johns Hopkins Medical Image Research Archive Center for research data storage and distribution
Imaging also offers CORIS, a one week observership program for anyone interested in radiology. Participants have an opportunity to shadow Katarzyna (Kasia) J. Macura, MD, PhD, FACR, Professor of Radiology, Urology and Oncology.
For more information and to schedule a time, contact Atefeh Ameri at firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-287-7630.

Proteomics Facility couples mass spectrometry to one and two dimensional separations by column chromatography or gel electrophoresis to identify, quantify or characterize proteins and their post-translational modifications, that are present in complex protein extracts or isolated in solution, gel bands or spots from cells, tissues or body fluids.
- Metabolite profiling for small molecules from clinical samples
- Provides biomarker development support
- Marker verification, validation, qualification for clinical implementation
- Provides technology and analysis to maximizes coverage of key proteomes required for discovery
- Quantitative protein analysis methods including mass spectrometry and development of new technologies
The Metabolomics Program:
- Provides consultation to basic, clinical, and translational research teams regarding the feasibility, design, and costs of projects using metabolomics technologies (including mass spec and NMR-based metabolomics);
- Provides metabolomics approaches based on specific research projects/questions: ranging from simple assays to high-throughput approaches such as global metabolic profiling and stable isotope-13C, 15N-labeled on a wide variety of sample types;
- Provides extensive data analysis and suggests options for subsequent steps towards clinical implementation.
