UM Research Collaboration Opportunities

UMCP & UMB - AI + Medicine for High Impact (AIM-HI) Challenge Awards

University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) leadership seeks to fund big research initiatives in the fields of artificial intelligence + medicine that will contribute to major scientific discoveries, secure sizable extramural funding, and ideally lead to a meaningful improvement in quality of patient care or treatment.

There is world-class expertise at UMB in a range of medical and health areas; there is world-class expertise in multiple applications and uses of AI in a number of colleges at UMCP. We expect that uniting these complementary efforts in pursuit of AI + medicine initiatives will lead to major scientific breakthroughs with the potential to secure significant extramural funding. For example, these joint efforts may lead to projects in multifactorial biomarker diagnostics; predictive medical algorithms that leverage continuous streaming medical datasets; the optimization of AI applications for imaging evaluation/ diagnosis in radiology, pathology, omics, etc


We expect to fund two or three teams to support this effort. Each team will be provided up to $200K per year, for a maximum of 3 years, making a total of $600K per project available. To acquire the second and third years of funding, demonstrable progress must be met.
