The Clinical Core provides strategic direction and infrastructure to increase patient-oriented collaborative clinical and translational research by the JHU investigative community.
Five co-directors from the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health, with domestic and international HIV-related research.
• Treatment and clinical progression of HIV-infection and associated opportunistic illness,
• Important co-infections (TB, viral hepatitis, etc.)
• Emerging non-infectious co-morbidities (cardiovascular, kidney, endocrine/metabolic, neurocognitive, and malignancy) and substance abuse.
• Consultation on design, implementation and analysis of clinical and translational studies
• Expertise with data base management
• Research coordination-
o Assistance with Johns Hopkins IRB submissions
o Assistance in conducting clinical and translational studies (patient recruitment, informed consent, phlebotomy, data form completion, follow-up)
• International research awards for junior faculty and those new to HIV research
The Clinical Core provides junior researchers the opportunity to present their research ideas, designs and progress to a group of senior investigators in applicable fields. The Core will help identify investigators and arrange meetings in an informal setting. Ideally this occurs early in the research process so that any revisions can be implemented.
• The Center for AIDS Research and the AIDS Education and Training Center are collaborating to provide clinicians and investigators with information on current research, topics of interest as well as clinical updates. These events take place every Friday at 12 PM, usually in Rangos 590. Due to COVID-19, this is now via Zoom. Additionally, the Friday noon conference provides an opportunity for providers to bring cases to discuss.
• If you would like to be added to the email list to be notified of this recurring event, sign up here.
• If you have a research study you would like to present as a Bartlett Brief at an AETC/CFAR HIV Providers Meeting, please contact Christina Bunch (firstname.lastname@example.org). Starting November 1, 2020, please contact Laura Clark,(email@example.com).
