Welcome to UMB ICTR
To the UMB Community:
Welcome to the UMB ICTR website. This website provides the opportunity to access the exceptional quality of shared resources available across our campus. The UMB ICTR is committed to bringing together the schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, law, social work, and pharmacy scientists and professionals to develop the best strategies for rapidly delivering these resources to our research community. The primary goals of the ICTR are to:
- Provide a seamless integrated infrastructure to drive the entire spectrum (T0-T4) of clinical and translational research bidirectionally from molecules to communities.
- Promote innovation in clinical and translational research by stimulating multi- and interdisciplinary team science directed at the translation of basic discovery to human studies and product development as we engage other academic hubs and industry.
- Educate and train generations of multidisciplinary clinical and translational scientists by providing education for trainees at all levels and backgrounds, including students in medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, social work, law, and graduate studies; residents, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty focused on preventing the health burden of acute and chronic diseases across the lifespan.
- To provide a forum for bidirectional conversations with communities, networks, and practitioners outside academia to identify needs, synthesize emerging data supporting new health interventions, and systematically examine ways in which evidence-based interventions are integrated into best practices in community settings, including schools, clinical practice, and health systems to reduce disparities in health outcomes.
Achieving these goals will have a major impact on the health of patients and diverse communities including rural and urban underserved populations in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Mid-Atlantic region.
