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.
Biologics Translational Program
This lab offers: Biologic product development and testing Consultative support for biologic development Preclinical testing to clinical production.
Cardiovascular Imaging Laboratory
The Cardiovascular Imaging Laboratory is located at the Bayview CRU and is supervised by Pamela Ouyang, MBBS, ICTR Deputy Director and Director of the Johns Hopkins Women’s Cardiovascular Health Center.
Clinical Research Unit Core Laboratory
The Clinical Research Unit Core Laboratory is housed in the Asthma and Allergy Center at the Bayview Medical Campus.
Imaging Translational Program
The Imaging Translational Technology Core (Imaging TTC) facilitates one-on-one consultation with imaging experts for study design, imaging protocol development and study implementation.
Genetics Translational Technology Program
The Genetics Translational Technology Program bridges the gap between clinical genetic testing and research-driven molecular technologies with consulting and laboratory services and assistance with translation of molecular technologies to the clinical environment.
Drug Screening, Development & Analysis Units
The Drug Screening Library Unit maintains, distributes, and screens drug library (FDA approved) compounds. This unit is ideal for re-purposing licensed drugs by screening activity against new targets.
Pediatric Motion Analysis Laboratory
The Pediatric Motion Analysis Laboratory is available through the NBRU in the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
The Metabolomics Program: Provides consultation to basic, clinical, and translational research teams regarding the feasibility, design, and costs of projects using metabolomics technologies.
Medicinal Chemistry Unit
The Medicinal Chemistry Unit synthesizes small molecule when it is not commercially available. This unit also supports structure-activity relationship studies.
Proteomic Biomarker Development Program
Proteomics Facility couples mass spectrometry to one and two dimensional separations by column chromatography or gel electrophoresis to identify, quantify or characterize proteins.
