Background and Structure
Genetics Translational Technology Core (GTTC) is part of the Institute for Clinical
and Translational Research at Johns Hopkins. It was created to
bridge the gap between clinical genetic testing and research-driven
The GTTC is directed by
Garry Cutting, MD. It is organized into a technical advisory group,
including several experts in molecular technologies, and a core laboratory
directed by Steven J. Steinberg, PhD.
The GTTC can provide consultation to investigators regarding molecular
technologies, study design, epidemiology, and clinical ramifications
(informed consent and result reporting) of proposed projects.
Process of Submitting Requests Through GTTC
Investigators should submit requests for consultation through the
Request System of the ICTR.
Once submitted, requests are assessed and assigned to a GTTC staff member,
and the investigator will be contacted.
