Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

Research Support

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital provides wide-ranging support for researchers on today’s studies that will lead to tomorrow’s advancements in pediatric medicine. 

Advancements in pediatric health depends on fundamental scientific investigation aimed at the discovery of the basic mechanisms of disease that impact children, as well as the early origins of later-onset disease. Biomedical discovery at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital has great potential to improve not only children’s health, but also future generations of adults. 

Our institution-wide support programs serve as a vital resource for designing and implementing funded, innovative studies with researchers across disciplines and levels of experience. 

Our research support programs include: 

Research Education & Training 

The Designing Clinical Research Program provides hands-on clinical research training and mentoring to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital clinicians. The program includes the Clinical and Translational Research Advisory and Mentorship Committee, which provides a forum for presenting and discussing research studies in various stages. 

Research & Grants Administration 

The Research & Grants Administration department provides services for those seeking funding for new research studies and currently conducting research. Services include identifying funding opportunities, budget development, proposal development assistance, and contract negotiation.   

Research Operations Unit 

Our experienced clinical research team has worked on a range of study designs, and has expertise and certification in a wide variety of therapeutic areas. The Research Operations team supports research from study start-up to reporting. 

Study Design & Analysis 

The Study Design and Analysis Core collaborates with investigators at every stage during a research study, tailors services to the needs of the investigator, and works with Database Management to provide comprehensive support for clinical research.
