Master Mentor Program


The Master Mentor program is designed to create cohorts of experienced and well-trained expert mentors of junior faculty who are maximally effective at enhancing the career trajectory of their mentees.   Jennifer Haythornthwaite, PhD, Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences David Yousem, MD, Professor, Radiology   Mission/Vision: These Master Mentors are a resource that can coach and provide counsel to other less-experienced mentors within a department in handling difficult advisor situations and helping faculty develop and enhance interpersonal skills for optimal mentor-mentee interactions. Successful Master Mentors will accelerate the advancement of their mentees and elevate the quality of mentorship throughout their […]

Project DIDACT


Project DIDACT: Disseminate to the clinical and translational research community Innovative statistical methods and software for the Design and Analysis of Clinical Trials   This joint effort among doctors Miguel Hernan (Harvard), David Kent (Tufts), Kelley Kidwell (Michigan), Michael Rosenblum (Johns Hopkins), Daniel Scharfstein (Johns Hopkins) and Ravi Varadhan, will create a cutting edge analytic tool kit needed to support the next generation of trials. Topics will include: Sequential, multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) designs (Kidwell) Leveraging baseline covariates to improve the efficiency of randomized trials (Rosenblum) Casual analysis of pragmatic trials (Hernan) Sensitivity analysis for randomized trials with missing outcome […]

Patient Safety Collaborative


An infrastructure of expertise to streamline the discovery and translation of innovative technologies that improve patient safety.   We are working with Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering to establish an “Engineering Collaborative for Patient Safety” to bring engineering talent to clinicians so they may solve patient safety issues. This collaborative is an effort of the Master of Science in Engineering Management (MSEM) program at Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering, the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology and Clinical Research, and the Johns Hopkins Hospital Clinical Engineering […]

Courses for Translational Researchers


Johns Hopkins University has partnered with Cousera to develop a series of online data science courses taught by faculty members from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.  The data science specialization covers the concepts and tools needed throughout the entire data science pipeline, from asking the right kinds of questions to making inferences and publishing results. Students will learn to: formulate context relevant questions and hypotheses to drive data scientific research identify, obtain and transform a data set to make it suitable for the production of statistical evidence communicated in written form build models based on new […]

K-to-R Transition Program


Gail Daumit, MD, MHS Professor of Medicine The “K-to-R” Transition Program was implemented in response to the growing need to enhance the transition from mentored career development awards (K’s) to independent awards (R’s). The ICTR’s Training, Education, & Career Development Programs has partnered with the Office of Faculty Development and the Professional Development and Career Office to provide oversight, support, resources, and networking opportunities for K-level mentored awardees.  To address some of the needs and overcome the barriers identified, this program links available resources for preparation of future R grant submissions, including individual or small group mentoring and an annual retreat for […]

Science: Out of the Box


Why is cancer so hard to treat—and what new strategies are researchers considering? What do cells do when their DNA gets tangled up? How do brain cells build connections to each other? Our researchers use toys to help answer these and other questions in the video series Science: Out of the Box. Immunotherapy and Antibodies | Slaying Lung Cancer   Medical oncologist Julie Brahmer, M.D., explains how immunotherapy works as a tool in treating lung cancer. Using toys and finger paints, she demonstrates how the immune system attacks cancer cells. Dr. Brahmer discusses why immunotherapy is a promising new treatment […]
