The Office of Research Environment Systems (RES) was formed in July of 2010 as part of the Johns Hopkins University's "The Best Environment for Research and Scholarship", an initiative with the goal of lessening the administrative burdens on researchers.

RES plans, designs, develops and maintains various electronic research compliance systems at Johns Hopkins University. RES is dedicated to creating integrated web-based systems that are secure, reliable, scalable and efficient. Current clients include The School of Medicine Institutional Review Board, The Homewood Institutional Review Board, The Office of Policy Coordination, The Offices of Research Administration, The Institutional Bio-Safety Committee, The Institutional Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee, and The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.

RES is committed to...

  • Making researchers' needs our priority.
  • Achieving optimal data sharing between systems to diminish redundant tasks.
  • Ensuring projects move forward efficiently and are completed on time and at a reasonable cost.
  • Developing processes that are efficient and consistent between systems and offices.
  • Guaranteeing our systems are of the highest quality and meet the needs of researchers.
