JHM Policy Governing Use of Human Biospecimens to Derive Immortalized or Pluripotent Stem Cell Lines

JHM leadership believes it is important to provide guiding principles for the ethical use of human biospecimens to derive immortalized or pluripotent stem cell lines. The same principles should apply to human biospecimens with identifiers and to those that have been de-identified. The policy defining these principles is effective July 1, 2016. View the policy online here.


Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research

The Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) offers many clinical resources for faculty and student investigators, including outpatient and inpatient space for studies in clinical research units, patient recruitment tools, collaboration opportunities, and various tools to protect patient data. To see all the services offered by the ICTR, visit the ICTR website.


Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network

The Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network (JHCRN) is an all-in-one resource for linking investigators to regional community-hospital based collaborators for the success of investigator-initiated and industry funded studies. Please visit the JHCRN website to learn more about this network: http://ictr.johnshopkins.edu/clinical/clinical-resources/human-subjects-research-core/jhcrn/.


JHM HSR Recertification Training

Effective March 1, 2016, The Johns Hopkins Medicine Human Research Protection Program requires Principal Investigators (PIs) to complete HSR recertification training every 3 years, and then complete recertification every 3 years. This is now consistent with study team member recertification, which is also required every 3 years.

HSR recertification is required for NEW APPLICATION submissions only (all study team members) and CHANGE IN RESEARCH submissions (only study team members being added - not existing study team members). If the required recertification courses have not been completed by the PI and all study team members prior to submission of the new application, the application will be returned to the PI.

Who needs it?

  • For Principal Investigators (PIs), recertification will include 4 required online modules and 1 in-person activity (the 100 points system will no longer be used). The list of in-person activities will include a variety of instructor-led courses and in-person workshops offered throughout the calendar year. A combination of the 4 required modules and 1 of the in-person activities will result in the completion of PI recertification.
  • For all other study team members, recertification will include 4 required online modules and 2 additional courses available for choosing. A combination of the 4 required modules and 2 additional course available for choosing will result in the completion of study team recertification.

Exceptions:

  • Non-affiliated study team members and Clinical Research Network (CRN) study team members may submit their compliance training recertification for Basic Human Subjects Research (BHSR) from CITI, their local institution or another institution, such as NIH.
  • For eIRB applications that are determined to be not human subjects research (NHSR), recertification is not required.
  • Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (SPH) and Homewood study team members can submit human subjects recertification certificates from their local institution. Please note: SPH and Homewood are on a 5-year recertification. We will accept certificates that are <5 years old.
