Thanks to Our Gala Sponsors!

The annual School of Medicine Gala is attended by hundreds of Maryland business leaders, legislators, and alumni, as well as faculty, staff and students. More than a night of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dancing, the School of Medicine Gala provides critical funding for basic science and translational research and clinical initiatives at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Gala proceeds also support the Dean’s Academic Development Fund to provide funds for our most critical needs. The 2014 gala raised $400,000.

Gala venues have included the Baltimore Convention Center, the Hilton Baltimore, the Baltimore B & O Railroad Museum, the American Visionary Art Museum, and the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel.

The evening includes a special presentation on the latest research discoveries and the life-saving clinical care provided by esteemed faculty scientists and physicians.
