The Office of Research and Development (ORD) is the chief administrative unit and catalyst for advancing research and economic development at UMB.

ORD furthers these developments by providing high-quality service to investigators, fostering new research and clinical initiatives with industry, and promoting translational discoveries into public benefit. Our outreach projects encourage economic development in West Baltimore through the University of Maryland BioPark and the Office of Community Engagement, and global outreach through the Center for Global Education Initiatives.
