The Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States / Johns Hopkins Medicine Research Collaboration Program is now accepting applications. All Applications and accompanying materials must be submitted by December 15, 2022; 5:00pm, ET.

As part of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Institute for Clinical and Translation Research, the Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States/Johns Hopkins Medicine Research Collaboration Program supports collaborative epidemiologic, health services, and related clinical research to be conducted jointly by Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers in alignment with both organizations’ strategic priorities.

The KPMAS/JHM Research Collaboration Program is guided by the Research Collaboration Committee, comprised of key leaders from Johns Hopkins Medicine ICTR and the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Research Institute.

The program seeks to fund 12-month research projects that highlight the effective synergy of the KPMAS/JHM collaboration in tackling the complex and intriguing questions vexing both health systems. Projects should be for initial research that leverages the unique capabilities of KP and JHM as learning health systems

Funded projects will be managed by two co-Principal Investigators; one from KP and one from JHM. If an investigator has an idea for a project but does not know a potential research collaborator from either JHM or KP,  the leaders at MAPRI and JHM will endeavor to make introductions on their behalf. For more information, contact ResearchCollaboration@kp.org (KPMAS) or ICTR_Navigators@jhmi.edu (JHM).
