The Johns Hopkins Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine is consistently one of the top funded anesthesiology departments in the country. A variety of funding opportunities are available throughout the year for faculty and fellows. Extramural support is available through governmental (NIH, NSF) and private foundations, and intramural support is available via departmental programs such as the StAAR awards. Anyone interested in applying to a granting agency should contact the Research and Grants Office to coordinate the submission process.
The Stimulating and Advancing ACCM Research (StAAR) Awards aim to allocate departmental investment funds that promote the career and program development of its faculty. StAAR awards are administered to faculty through a comprehensive, peer-reviewed process to support innovative research proposals that have a high likelihood of being leveraged into extramural funding. There are two grant submission deadlines each year for awards that fund a period of 12 months.

The members of the Sponsored Projects Office assist faculty members from the grant proposal pre-award aspects of grant funding through the post-award process. In the pre-award stage, the highly trained analysts assist faculty in developing the budget proposal and complete the required forms for NIH grants and various foundations. Furthermore, they act as liaisons between the faculty members and the Johns Hopkins Office of Research Administration to ensure that grants are accurately submitted to the various agencies.
In addition, the financial analysts monitor all expenditures for each grant, including salaries, and report to the faculty member on a regularly basis. The office also assists with progress reports, close-out of grants, and various other finance-related activities.
In the post-award cycle, the Sponsored Projects Office is responsible for closing the accounts and assisting the investigators in preparing the final accounting reports, which will be sent to the various foundations and agencies.

ACCM Core Equipment List
ACCM researchers have access to several pieces of research equipment that is shared amongst the PI’s. Click to see list (Excel).
Combined Flow Cytometry and Functional Imaging Core
The mission of the core is to promote access and training to flow cytometry and live imaging technology for successful research projects, grant funding, and peer reviewed publication within the department. The ACCM combined flow cytometry and live-imaging core was established to provide the department with state-of-the-art data acquisition technology. The core contains two pieces of equipment, the CytoFLEX and the IncuCyte, that enable flow cytometry and live imaging-based data acquisition. The core offers users hands-on training, experimental design assistance and troubleshooting. For more information, contact Dr. Nikki Heller at email@example.com.
