Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI)

Health sciences at UMB and bioengineering at UMCP already have a rich collaborative relationship in both research programs and graduate student programs. Major areas of partnership between the School of Pharmacy at UMB and the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at UMCP include jointly taught graduate courses, joint faculty, and research collaborations. Now this relationship has been strengthened by the creation of the Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI), a collaborative partnership between the two universities focused on modernizing and improving the ways drugs and medical devices are reviewed and evaluated. Initially funded by a three-year, $3 million grant from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), M-CERSI joins researchers from both campuses with FDA staff to support the development of new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of FDA-regulated products.
