Clinical/Translational Research Cores & Shared Resources

Johns Hopkins All Children’s cores and shared resources in clinical/translational research are part of an infrastructure designed to offer access to state-of-the-art research tools, technologies, consultation and services for investigators campus-wide, optimizing the quality and efficiency of clinical/translational research.

The Clinical Research Unit Staff

This dedicated unit within the hospital treats patients in research-intensive studies that require additional monitoring and care. Research-trained pediatric nurses have a centralized space to carry out functions delegated by the principal investigator on a research protocol — including drawing blood, performing infusions, study procedures, procuring biorepository samples, administering study medications, and monitoring research participants.  This allows the space to follow the research protocol and provide a more convenient, comfortable space for patients.
