New Informatics and Bioimaging Center combines resources, expertise from UMD, UMB
Date:11/20/2012

ADELPHI, Md. A new center that combines advanced computing resources at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) with clinical data and biomedical expertise at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) could soon revolutionize the efficiency and effectiveness of health care in the state of Maryland and beyond.

The Center for Health-related Informatics and Bioimaging (CHIB) announced today joins computer scientists, life scientists, engineers, physicists, biostatisticians and others at the College Park campus with imaging specialists, physicians, clinicians and additional health experts in Baltimore.

These cross-institutional teams will work on projects that apply major advances in computing power to grand challenges in genomics, health records management and in analyzing massive amounts of data available from new imaging technologies.

Ultimately, officials say, the research at CHIB will advance the concept of personalized medicine, where decisions and practices are tailored to individual patients through the use of genetic sequencing and other biomedical information.

"This is exactly the type of collaborative science, leveraging the strengths of each institution, we anticipated when launching MPowering the State last spring," says UMD President Wallace Loh.

MPowering the State is the strategic partnership between UMD and UMB intended to significantly expand research collaborations, business development and student opportunities at both institutions.

"Our cross-institutional researchers, together with our clinicians, are helping open the doors to personalized medicine," says UMB President Jay A. Perman. "CHIB is going to help us move more quickly from basic research to therapeutics to patient care. As a physician, I'm excited about what this will mean for health care in Maryland and the region."

Leadership of the joint center will be split between the two campuses: Amitabh Varshney, profess
