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 integrity, excellence, sustainability, and collaboration through team-science. With these values in mind, we’ve created a service-based model that is responsive, efficient, and focused on a mentored support structure.

Data Management

The BEAD Core has the expertise to develop and maintain databases and data collection tools in Microsoft Access, REDCap, audio computer-assisted self-interviewing (ACASI), and Teleform. Clients get many opportunities to beta test drafts and submit revisions. Thus upon final delivery, our databases are perfectly customized to suit our clients’ needs.
