The Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness
We seek to improve the safe and effective use of medications by bringing together researchers at Johns Hopkins to accomplish a fourfold mission — training, research, patient care and public service — toward best medication practices.
Our team studies range from molecular and cellular to genetic and laboratory animal-based approaches that help researchers understand the mechanisms, risk factors and pathophysiology of aging-related changes in health, function and quality of life.
Our center was created to support the next generation of researchers to determine causes and treatments for frailty in older adults.
Director: Jeremy Walston, M.D.
The Center for Tuberculosis Research
We aim to apply medical technology to basic advances in understanding of the pathogenesis of TB, host immunity to TB, mechanisms of spread and animal models that better emulate the pathology of human disease.
Directors: Richard Chaisson, M.D.
The Sherrilyn and Ken Fisher Center for Environmental Infectious Diseases
We are dedicated to the clinical research of diseases that may be classified as environmental infectious diseases, includes disease-causing agents found in traditional ecological environments, such as air, soil and water, and those acquired from built environments (home, hospital and community).
Directors: Paul Auwaerter, M.D., M.B.A.
The Transplant and Oncology Infectious Diseases Program
Our program aims to expand institutional expertise in clinical and academic activities focused on infectious complications in transplant (solid organ and stem cell) and oncology patients at Johns Hopkins.
