Both formal and informal mentoring processes will be available to young faculty at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

  • Junior and minority investigators interested in developing a development award application may approach the Developmental Core with a request for mentorship.  This can be done in the letter of intent to apply for the award or by direct communication with the core.
  • The Developmental Core leadership will meet with the candidate, discuss their research idea, and seek to “match” the candidate with a senior CFAR investigator with relevant expertise in the candidate’s area. Should this mentoring relationship be mutually welcome and successful, the mentor will assist the candidate through the application process, and if awarded, mentorship would continue through the completion of the developmental award.
  • The Developmental Core will provide applicants who have not had independent funding with a mentor for grant preparation, and this opportunity is also available to other applicants if they are interested.
  • Applicants are also required to seek statistical guidance where it is appropriate– this is provided by the Statistical Core.
  • Support for human subjects concerns will also be available to investigators through the Berman Institute of Bioethics' Research Ethics Consulting Service.
