Funding opportunity: Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente research collaboration grant

The Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins Medicine Research Collaboration Committee is actively requesting research proposals to foster collaborative research between the two institutions and address complex and intriguing health care and clinical questions vexing our health systems. Specifically, they are looking for research proposals that are aligned with both organizations' strategies and present opportunities to prove the synergy of the Kaiser Permanente/Johns Hopkins collaboration. The hope is to identify and fund proposals that accomplish seminal research utilizing the unique capabilities that only such organizations as Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins have.

Broadly, the goal is to support collaborative epidemiologic, health services, and related clinical research to be conducted jointly by Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins researchers. The review panel (the Kaiser Permanente/Johns Hopkins Research Collaboration Committee, "RCC") will consider a wide array of research proposals ranging from analyzing EMR data, developing clinical research registries, implementing safety and quality improvement research projects and large collaborative studies, and conducting comparative effectiveness trials. The proposals have limited funding (up to $75,000 for 12 months; non-renewable), so the goal is likely to fund pilot work for larger and more complex research proposals later.
