Our Approach

We’re better together.

IBBR 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. We work toward these goals by:

  • Leveraging the collective research strengths of our partnering institutions – the University of Maryland College Park (UMD), the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) – in medicine, biosciences, technology, quantitative sciences and engineering.
  • Creating innovative cross-functional collaborations that break down traditional silos and lead to pioneering research and development.
  • Working with a wide range of academic, government, industry, investor and donor partners to move ideas from promising theory to real-world use.
