Clinical Research: AAMC and Hopkins Research Network

by kimbra on July 2, 2012

Several years ago, members of the Anne Arundel Health Systems Research Institute joined forces with leadership from the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research to establish a new organization called the Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network (JHCRN). The network combines the expertise and resources of a major academic health system with those of regional centers engaged in clinical research. The goal of the JHCRN is to bring the option of clinical trials to a broader and more diverse range of communities, conduct research studies simultaneously and collaboratively within the network, and shorten the interval for clinical innovations to become accessible to mainstream medical practice.

The network has grown to include Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Inova Health System, and Peninsula Regional Medical Center. We have begun opening clinical trials together, with seven JHCRN studies active here under AAMC co-investigators. Under the co-directorship of Adrian Dobs, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Oncology at Johns Hopkins, and John Niederhuber, M.D., former Director of the National Cancer Institute and CEO of Inova’s Translational Medicine Institute, the JHCRN continues to expand its membership and its role in clinical research in Maryland and beyond.

If you have an interest or experience in conducting clinical research and would like to know more about how you can become a participant in the JHCRN, please contact Joe Moser, M.D., by email, or at 443-481-1309. More information on JHCRN can be found in the brochure available here.
