About the JHCRN

The Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network (JHCRN) connects Johns Hopkins with community health care partners to promote multi-site clinical research.

The JHCRN provides a unique collaborative research infrastructure that enhances the flow of scientific information and expands the capacity to conduct clinical and translational research. By providing an integrated approach, the network is positioned to foster research collaborations across the entire continuum of healthcare and to facilitate new research partnerships.

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.
