Office of Research Affairs
The Office of Research Affairs (ORA) provides support for research being conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM). The ORA serves as a "research hub" to assist faculty in expanding collaborative, innovate research that will lead to an increased number of novel competitive grant applications to a variety of funding agencies. The ORA staff provides a wide-range of services to SOM faculty.

A research team led by Mohit N. Gilotra, MD, assistant professor of orthopaedics at the UMSOM, will receive the prestigious 2018 Charles S. Neer Award from the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES).
With a limited number of lungs available, deciding who gets a transplant can be a matter of life or death. New research from the UMSOM suggests that the system for choosing transplant recipients in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may underestimate how long a person might survive without a lung transplant and therefore, may mislead clinicians.
