CDABS is a one-stop shop for anyone interested in working with data across disciplines and an important resource for the UMB community, bringing together many bioinformatics, data science, and research data resources in one place. We can help with access and training on these data resources.
UMB Data Catalog The Catalog is a searchable collection of records describing datasets generated by UMB researchers. To increase the visibility of your research data and to support data re-use, meet with a member of the data catalog team to discuss entering information about your dataset.
High Performance Computer (HPC) The HPC has state-of-the-art hardware and commercial and open source software for performing analysis of experimental data, such as scientific images, sequence reads, and flow cytometry files.
UMB Institute for Clinical & Translational Research (ICTR)
The UMB ICTR is a campus wide clinical translational research initiative supported by the UMB campus. The UMB ICTR provides financial support as well as infrastructure, environment, training, and workforce to invigorate, facilitate, and accelerate clinical translational research to improve patient and community health.
Genomics Resource Center (GRC)
Genomics Resource Center (GRC) is a high-throughput laboratory and data analysis group supporting the scientific programs of IGS and its collaborators, both across the University of Maryland Baltimore campus and across the globe. The GRC team has been an early-adopter and pioneer in genomic technology development for the past 25 years. Genomic technologies and applications now permeate both basic and clinical research. Using multiple sequencing and analysis platforms, the GRC generates high-quality genomic data in a cost-effective manner.
Informatics Resource Center (IRC)
The Informatics Resource Center (IRC) at IGS supports the bioinformatics activities by providing annotation and analysis of genomic data for internal and external projects, using state-of-the-art computational infrastructure. Often the IRC group works in combination with the Genomics Resource Center (GRC) to provide comprehensive analysis for projects.
UMSOM Office of Research Career Development (RCD)
The Office of Research Career Development (RCD) supports the research and professional development of SOM faculty, a diverse and accomplished group of physicians and scientists. Support for SOM faculty is available throughout their career progression, with an emphasis on supporting early stage faculty.
UMSOP Pharmaceutical Research Computing (PRC)
The Pharmaceutical Research Computing (PRC) center in the Department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy provides world-class support for impactful, inspired health services research â€“ one idea, one data set, and one researcher at a time.
General Clinical Research Center (GCRC)
Located in the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), 22 S. Greene St., 10th-floor C and D wings, the GCRC is supported by the UM School of Medicine and UMMC. The GCRC is available to all UMB researchers as a fee-for-service and supports the full spectrum of patient-oriented research, including pilot studies that may lead to peer-reviewed clinical research.
