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 … Continue reading

Behavioral, Social and Systems Science


The Behavioral, Social, and Systems Science community is lead by co-leaders Felicia Hill-Briggs and Jill Marsteller. The Behavioral, Social, and Systems Science (BSSS) community is designed to create an academic home and collaborative community for diverse scientists from across Johns Hopkins University who are conducting research in the areas of health and behavior, biopsychosocial interactions, social and cultural factors in health, health systems and health services, health IT, and methodologies. The BSSS Community serves as a catalyst to stimulate highly innovative researchers and research programs that expand the translation and dissemination of this research, and facilitate new methodologies for solving … Continue reading

Biomarkers and Diagnostic Testing


The Biomarkers and Diagnostic Tests community is lead by co-leaders Martin Pomper and Elizabeth Selvin. Diagnostic imaging has become the cornerstone of patient evaluation and therapy for many medical conditions. While the opportunities for research in imaging are limitless, most of our research activities can be categorized into the broad areas of imaging in the assessment of pharmacological and therapeutic modifiers of disease; assessment of new imaging technologies and methods; and image guided therapy. ​Advances in imaging technology benefit society as a whole and as such this community strives to build and sustain collaborative working relationships with many JHU departments, centers, … Continue reading

Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines and Devices


The Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines, and Devices community is lead by co-leaders Barbara Slusher and Clifford Weiss. The mission of the Drugs/Vaccines/Biologics/Devices Translational Research Community (TRC) is to stimulate highly innovative researchers and research programs that translate laboratory findings into new drug, device, or biologic therapeutics for human disease. We have been working to establish a vibrant and collaborative translational community for scientists across the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences who are conducting research in these areas. The goals of the Drugs/Vaccines/Biologics/Devices TRC are to: Identify, support and enhance institutional capacity within the … Continue reading

Translational Research Communities (TRC)


In 2014, the ICTR created three Translational Research Communities (TRCs): Drugs, Biologics, Vaccines, and Devices Co-Leaders Barbara Slusher and Clifford Weiss Biomarkers and Diagnostic Tests Co-Leaders Martin Pomper and Elizabeth Selvin Behavioral, Social, and Systems Science Co-Leaders Felicia Hill-Briggs and Jill Marsteller The goals of these communities are to: Stimulate discovery that impacts health Engage and employ the wide range of ICTR resources and program areas, for example study design, biostatistics, pilot project funding, and the CRUs. Improve the quality, innovation and impact of Johns Hopkins University (JHU) translational research Improve research impact through early partnering with stakeholders and the community … Continue reading
