Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR)

IBBR leverages the research strengths in biological and quantitative sciences, medicine, and engineering at both universities through cross-disciplinary team approaches to scientific challenges, technology development, and education. IBBR is focusing on three core areas: measurement sciences, biomolecular engineering, and disease models and biomolecular pathways. In FY14, UMB and UMCP conducted a national search and appointed a new director of IBBR, who has already established a new Scientific Advisory Board and underaken a strategic plan. For FY15, IBBR will continue these efforts and important research projects, including a collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology to begin proof of concept studies for a novel methodology for single peptide sequencing, and an industry collaboration to develop tools to improve research and treatment for hepatitis C.
