Janet Holbrook




My primary interest is in the design, conduct and analysis of multicenter clinical trials. As a member of the Center for Clinical Trials at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, I am also involved in educational initiatives about clinical trials. I teach an online and on-campus course on the science of clinical trials. I also coordinate and am a primary faculty member for an educational program on clinical trials for the FDA Commissioner's Fellows program, which is a post graduate program aimed at training scientific professionals for careers in industry and government related to pharmaceuticals. Currently I work on three multicenter clinical trials networks aimed at evaluating treatments for asthma and eye disease as well as serving as a member of independent data monitoring boards and as a peer reviewer for NIH and scientific journals.

Clinical trials are experiments designed to evaluate new interventions to prevent or treat disease in humans. The interventions evaluated can be drugs, devices (e.g., hearing aid), surgeries, behavioral interventions (e.g., smoking cessation program), community health programs (e.g. cancer screening programs) or health delivery systems (e.g., special care units for hospital admissions). We consider clinical trials experiments because the investigators rather the patients or their doctors select the treatment the patients receive.
