Research Studies at Suburban Hospital

For Our Researchers

The inclusion of Suburban Hospital into the Johns Hopkins family provides substantial opportunity for clinical research in a variety of disciplines. The Johns Hopkins Capital Region Research (CAPRES) office develops, manages and supports clinical research in the national capital corridor. A key CAPRES mission is to support and facilitate busy clinicians in pursuing cutting edge research at our CAPRES sites. We hope this site provides useful information regarding the initiation and conduction of research in CAPRES. This site will be updated frequently and regularly. We are also happy to field individual and specific inquiries via telephone or email.
