The mission of the BEAD Core is to provide research support services that promote, strengthen and expand the research of Johns Hopkins University faculty so that we remain one of the top interdisciplinary research institutions focused on improving the health and well-being of individuals, families and the communities they live in. Our Core values are respect, integrity, service, and equity through a team science approach celebrating multiple disciplines and training. With these values in mind, we’ve created a service-based model that is responsive, efficient, and focused on a mentored support structure.


The BEAD Core works collaboratively with investigators across varying scientific areas and levels of development. The collaborative nature ensures the production of high-quality scholarly work and benefits all members of the team, as well as the communities and populations we serve.

The BEAD Core serves research investigators within and outside of Johns Hopkins University. Services are either subsidized or direct fee-for-service.

The BEAD Core strives to facilitate the research of both new and seasoned investigators. Recognizing the unique needs of individual researchers, we specifically tailor our services to each client we work with.
