Centers & 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 healthcare technology innovation. Its goal is to positively impact the quality and accessibility of healthcare worldwide.

Center for Computational Biology

The Center for Computational Biology (CCB) is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to research on genomics, genetics, DNA sequencing technology, and computational methods for DNA and RNA sequence analysis.

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 Computational Medicine

The Institute for Computational Medicine (ICM) is developing quantitative approaches for understanding the mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease through applications of mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

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 is on advancing research into traumatic brain injuries and debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and Parkinson’s.

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.

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.

Center Grants

Center for Microphysiological Systems

The Center for Microphysiological Systems (CMPS) is developing human organ models for human disease biology, drug development, and precision medicine applications by integrating state-of-the-art human stem cell technologies with tissue engineering, microfabrication, AI-enabled data analytics, clinical science, and pharmaceutical development workflows.
