Affiliated centers and institutes

Alliance for Cardiovascular Diagnostic and Treatment Innovation (ADVANCE)

ADVANCE is an alliance between researchers and clinicians in the Whiting School of Engineering and the Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. The mission of the Alliance is to apply predictive data-driven approaches, computational modeling, and innovations in cardiac imaging to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation

The Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation is a nationally unique resource for research, education, and translation in imaging and image–guided interventions. Located in the heart of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and formed in collaboration between the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Neurosurgery.

Center for Bioengineering Innovation & Design

The Center for Bioengineering Innovation & Design (CBID) educates and develops the next generation of leaders in health care technology innovation. Their goal is to positively impact the quality and accessibility of health care worldwide.

Center for Epigenetics

The Center for Epigenetics has brought together investigators in genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, biostatistics, epidemiology, and clinical medicine to develop new technologies to apply to both basic science and population-based epigenetic studies.

Center for Hearing and Balance

The Center for Hearing and Balance performs research and trains new investigators, for both basic and clinical applications. Research is centered on auditory (hearing) and vestibular (balance) function in normal subjects and in patients with hearing or balance disorders.

Center for Imaging Science

The Center for Imaging Science (CIS) is immersed in the worldwide establishment of analytical models for image and pattern information transmission — analogous to the models generated in the Shannon era. A fundamental goal is extraction of metadata, and ultimately going from pixels to patterns to understanding.

Institute for Basic Biomedical Science

The Institute for Basic Biomedical Science (IBBS)works at the boundaries of current knowledge in biology, laying the foundations of future advances in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Institute for Computational Medicine

The Institute for Computational Medicine (ICM) makes it their mission to develop quantitative approaches for understanding the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of human disease through applications of mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

Mathematical Institute for Data Science

The Mathematical Institute for Data Science (MINDS) is establishing the principles behind the analysis and interpretation of massive amounts of complex data.

Institute for Cell Engineering

The Institute for Cell Engineering (ICE) represents the stem cell research effort at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where faculty, fellows, postdocs, students, and staff study some of the most exciting problems in stem cell science today.

Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute

The Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute was founded with a $10 million gift from the Kavli Foundation matched with $10 million in funds from Johns Hopkins University to promote collaboration among neuroscience, engineering, and data science to better understand the relationship between the brain and behavior. Composed of an interdisciplinary team of researchers, the focus will be on advancing research into traumatic brain injuries and debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and Parkinson’s.

Translational Tissue Engineering Center

The Translational Tissue Engineering Center (TTEC) educates and trains tomorrow’s leaders in regenerative medicine, and drives accelerated delivery of regenerative medicine technologies to patients.
