The Amish Research Clinic is the backbone of the Amish Research Program and contributes to improvements in healthcare through research. It also serves as a resource for health information and knowledge to the Amish Community.
BioMET is a collaborative effort between the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland College Park. BioMET brings together basic biomedical researchers with engineers to develop new strategies and new devices to enhance our ability to treat diseases.
The mission of CBT, which was established as a partnership between the University of Maryland-Baltimore and the University of Maryland at College Park, is to facilitate the identification and development of diagnostics and therapeutics. To accomplish this goal, the CBTcollaborates with research and clinical faculty to identify important biological targets; manages state-of-the-art scientific discipline-based programs for the discovery and regulation of disease targets; interacts with the biopharma industries to help maintain CBT’s focus on the most biomedically and commercially important targets, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
The CVD is an academic enterprise engaged in the full range of infectious disease intervention from basic laboratory research through vaccine development, pre-clinical and clinical evaluation, large-scale pre-licensure field studies, and post-licensure assessments.
CVPath Institute is a leading non-profit research and educational organization focused on human cardiovascular pathology. The instutue codifies one fo the largest and most comprehensive repositories of diseased human tissues for investigative studies and teaching.
IBBR, situated at the University of Maryland Shady Grove, exists to foster integrated, cross-disciplinary team approaches to scientific discovery, translational development and education, – and to create commercialization relationships and initiatives that serve the expanding economic base of biosciences and technology in the state of Maryland and across the country.
CVRL and UMBC are collaborating to establish the Cardiovascular Data Science Initiative, which aim to utilize Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning as well as traditional methodologies to unravel and mine the welath of data generated in clinical trials, electronic health records, digital health devices, cardiac imaging studies and academic drug discovery efforts.
The overall mission of the CVID is to promote research at the University of Maryland that advances knowledge of vascular and inflammatory diseases, and to interface with clinicians and to promote translation of the basic discoveries into novel therapeutic applications that will ultimately improve the health of patients.
The Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) is among the largest basic sciences departments in the School of Medicine. The EPH is a special place where successes are celebrated and faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to develop professionally.
Physiologists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine integrate molecular, cellular and systems biology to discover how life works. Our department has especially strong traditions in cardiovascular-renal biology, neuroscience and reproductive biology.
Clinical research is the main focus of departmental research activity. Multiple divisions within the department are pursuing a wide variety of research in state-of-the-art technologies such as spiral CT, MR imaging, SPECT imaging, teleradiology, and picture-archiving and communications system (PACS).
The vast expertise of our physicians, who are also University of Maryland School of Medicine faculty members, distinguishes us as a first-rate academic heart center.
