Community-Driven Research Day (CDRD)

Fostering innovative research for optimal community health outcomes


Community-Driven Research Day has been postponed. All Baltimore-based community organizations, city agencies, and  faculty and students from Baltimore Universities are encouraged to apply to participate in the Fall of 2018.

Please subscribe to our weekly announcements to be updated on a new date.

Are you a community-based organization or represent a city agency that is working to improve the health and well-being of Baltimore but in need of resources for research?

Join us for this exciting event of networking and dialogue with faculty and students from Johns Hopkins University and other academic institutions in Baltimore. Have your research needs heard, meet faculty and students to partner with you, and become aware of funding resources for your collaborative work. Faculty and students at Johns Hopkins University and surrounding colleges and universities are encouraged to register!
