Implementation Science Core


Join our Implementation Science Monthly Rounds on the first Tuesday of the month from 12 - 1PM EST

The July Implementation Science Monthly Rounds (ISMR) will feature Sita Lujintanon, PhD candidate in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She will be proposing a novel implementation science model that leverages causal diagrams to describe the causal relationships between the components within the implementation mechanism (e.g., contextual determinants, implementation strategies, implementation outcomes). The model will inform how implementation outcomes can be used to improve health outcomes. Her talk is titled "Implementation Outcome Interrelationship Model: Uncovering the role of implementation outcomes in improving HIV-related health outcomes."

Implementation Science Monthly Rounds:

The ISIG is open to investigators across the JHU CFAR and to the surrounding community, and endeavors to engage local community stakeholders and Health Departments in our work to foster meaningful collaborations and sustainable initiatives. Our faculty represent individuals across career stages endeavoring to increase knowledge of best practices and evolving methodologies in implementation science across CFAR investigators. We hold monthly open Implementation Science Monthly Rounds on the first Tuesday of the month from 12 - 1PM EST and organize one-off events. If interested in learning more or joining our mailing list, monthly meetings, or our Hopkins ISIG Teams site, please join us using the Zoom link:

Our Mission:

The mission of the JHU CFAR Implementation Science Interest Group (ISIG) is to support implementation science training and skill acquisition, and to facilitate the practical application of implementation science for JHU HIV researchers.  We aim to have a broad impact on conceptualization and innovation in implementation science training, methodologies and scholarship at JHU and in the implementation science research and practice community more broadly. We intend to accomplish these goals through 1) resource development including grant review, targeted events, monthly meetings to foster knowledge sharing and on-line repositories and libraries, and 2) promoting inter, intra and extra CFAR and JHU networking, collaboration and synergies.   

Ongoing Opportunities:

Leadership and Team:


The JHU CFAR ISIG has evolved from the CFAR Implementation Science Working Group which was previously led by Dr. Stefan Baral, Dr. Melissa-Davey Rothwell and Dr. Larry Chang. The ISIG continues to bring together a community of HIV researchers committed to conducting, advancing and/or newly engaging in implementation science research in the US and globally.
