At the University of Maryland, College Park, our investigators engage in research in disease prevention, and vaccine development, - for both humans and animals. They seek to understand the basis for cancer, neurological disease, and drug addiction, with the aim of providing new insights and tools for the clinical setting. Our wetlands research and studies in wildlife and biodiversity are helping describe and maintain species and their habitats, both locally and globally. Through our agricultural research, we are finding ways to improve nutrition and food production, feeding the world while reducing impact on the environment.

The role of the University of Maryland, College Park Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is to support advancements in biological and biomedical sciences through the responsible use of animals in research. The Animal Care Program at UMD is assured through the Public Health Service and registered with the USDA. Our program was accredited by the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) in 2011 and undergoes voluntary site evaluation from AAALAC on a triennial basis.
