Purpose: The Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute (FAMRI) Center of Excellence at Johns Hopkins was established in 2005 to support research related tobacco exposure, and to promote the translation of application of this research in therapeutic and health policy domains. The Developmental Research component of the Center is designed to provide support for novel research projects of direct relevance to tobacco-associated disease. Projects of particular interest to the Center are those that take advantage of the resources of the Research Cores. These may include a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the effects of secondhand smoke exposure, disease detection, therapeutic drug development, and interventional clinical trials.
- Johns Hopkins University Faculty of any academic rank and any department are eligible to apply.
- Eligible projects may include laboratory, clinical, or population studies
- Projects must be focused on strategies to prevent or treat disease caused by exposure to tobacco smoke
- Faculty members with current FAMRI grant funding are ineligible
- FAMRI-supported animal use in research is restricted to mice and rats
