IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO APPLY A ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL APPROACH TO DISEASE RESEARCH
Scientists in CMNS are tackling the dynamics of infectious and hereditary diseases at all scales, from complex multispecies conditions, such as malaria, to whole-body aging disorders; from the flu with its organ-specific infection pathway to the submicroscopic structure of disease-causing viruses and disease-fighting antibodies. From multispecies to the submolecular scale, CMNS researchers are fighting human diseases on multiple fronts.
The BBI is a research community of 100+ investigators that harnesses the power of a multi-disciplinary approach to solve the most pressing problems related to nervous system function in development, aging and disease.
CBCB is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to research on questions arising from the genome revolution. CBCB brings together scientists and engineers from many fields, including computer science, molecular biology, genomics, genetics, mathematics, statistics, and physics, all of whom share a common interest in gaining a better understanding of how life works.
The Center for Medical Innovations in Extended Reality, known as MIXR, joins UMD computer scientists and engineers with physicians and clinicians at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore and the University of Michigan to develop, test and certify XR technologies in medicine and health care.
