Science of Clinical Investigation (SOCI) Training Program


The Science of Clinical Investigation (SOCI) Training Program is designed to prepare clinicians and other biological scientists to participate in multidisciplinary clinical research.  Courses are offered on-site and online. Translational clinical research requires a team that can design, analyze, interpret, and implement clinical studies in compliance with ethical and regulatory norms.  Develop this expertise and become a leader in clinical research with the SOCI training program. The SOCI program contains both onsite and online courses including: Database Design and Implementation in Clinical Research Ethical and Regulatory Issues in Clinical Research Design of Clinical Studies Quantitative Analysis of Clinical Data Outcomes […]

Research Nutrition


If you are an investigator who would like to learn more about how to incorporate ICTR Research Nutrition support into your study, please contact the research nutrition manager as early as possible in your protocol development process. About Us ICTR Research Nutrition was established to support CRU investigators in developing and implementing the best nutritional plans for their research protocols for both pediatrics and adults. Services are located in the clinical research units at both the Johns Hopkins Bayview Campus and the Broadway (main medical) Campus. Research Nutrition staff includes a diverse nutrition team comprised of a research nutrition manager, research […]

We analyze the 24-hour recalls and food records using Nutrition Data System for Research (NDSR).

Nutrition Education

We provide diet counseling and nutrition education for numerous protocols that involve weight loss, food allergies, chronic diseases including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and a wide range of rare metabolic disorders for both pediatrics and adults.

Anthropometrics and Body Composition

We offer several non-invasive techniques to measure body composition, including:

  • Height and weight,
  • Circumference measurements like waist, hip, head, thigh, and mid-arm,
  • Skinfold measurements to estimate percentage of body fat, arm muscle area, and arm fat area,
  • Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA): A small current is passed through the body to estimate body fat mass (weight and percent), fat-free or lean body mass (weight and percent), and body water.

Energy Assessment

  • Indirect Calorimetry– The metabolic cart calculates energy expenditure (REE), which accounts for 75-95% of total energy expenditure. The remaining 5-25% is highly variable depending on age, sex, size, disease state, and daily activity.
  • Predictive Equations– These equations calculate energy requirements based on height, weight, age, and activity factor. Examples are the Mifflin St. Jeor equation, the Harris-Benedict equation, DRIs, etc.

Visit Meals and Diets

We can provide standard or protocol-specific meals snacks, and formula.
