Graduate Write-Up Area
Adjacent to the laboratories on each floor are write-up areas for students and postdoctoral fellows featuring outstanding natural lighting. These three 1000 square-foot rooms are ideal for encouraging research discussions and enhancing collaborative research projects.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility
This facility provides support for a full range of NMR studies into the structure, dynamics, kinetics and reaction mechanisms of small organic molecules, pharmaceuticals, and biomolecules, as well as ligand binding studies and metabonomics. It houses a high-resolution NMR spectrometer for solution-state experiments. The Varian INOVA 500 MHz has four channels, a Z-axis gradient, and variable temperature control (-20 to 80 deg C); it is suitable for multi-dimensional, multi-nuclei and long-term experiments, as well as samples at low concentrations. Some of the nuclei available for detection are 1H, 2H, 13C, 15N and 31P.

X-ray Crystallography Core Facility
This facility was established in 2006 by the School of Pharmacy and Greenebaum Cancer Center, School of Medicine. Under supervision of the x-ray crystallography community and available to all the research groups inside/outside the campus, our facility provides X-ray crystallography services to study the structure-function relationship of proteins including instrument and expertise for automated protein crystallization screening, x-ray diffraction data collecting and processing from macromolecular single crystals.

Mass Spectrometry/Proteomic Facility
This facility's mission is to accelerate discovery by giving investigators access to cutting-edge technologies in mass spectrometry and proteomics. This Facility also provides researchers the opportunity and access to very sophisticated experiments by working closely in a true collaborative effort between faculty, students and staff. The laboratory is equipped to offer a broad range of support services with two state-of-the-art mass spectrometers.

Center for Computer-Aided Drug Design
This research center provides collaborative opportunities for biologists to apply computer-aided design approaches to their research programs. These efforts focus on identifying chemical compounds with desired biological activity and structural optimization of that activity. Chemical compounds created from these steps have the potential to be developed into research tools and therapeutic agents. Successful outcomes of this approach will include publication in scholarly journals and patent submissions on the biologically active compounds, laying the foundation for external funding via federal, private or industrial sources.

Center for Nanomedicine and Cellular Delivery
Research in this center is focused on the development of diagnostics for rapid monitoring, targeted cancer therapies, localized drug delivery, improved cell material interactions, scaffolds for tissue engineering, and gene delivery systems. Nanomedicine aims at controlling the rate and location (at the organ, tissue, cellular or subcellular levels) of drug release. This is particularly important to enhance the delivery of potent agents to their target while minimizing toxicity to other normal tissues. By targeting the delivery of therapeutic agents to their target site, it is possible to maximize efficacy of drugs and reduce toxicity.

Pharmaceutical Research Computing
This research center provides computer programming, data management and analytic support for faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and other health services researchers. PRC offers a full array of data support services, including procuring data, investigating data integrity and completeness, cleaning data, creating and validating analytic files. In addition, PRC is able to provide input on pharmacotherapeutic issues, operationalize variable definitions (drugs, diagnosis, procedures), perform statistical analyses, participate in project management, and manuscript development.

The Maryland Poison Center
The call center operates 24/7, 365 days a year and is set up to facilitate pharmacy student and EMT training. The Maryland Poison Center is certified by the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) as a regional poison center providing poisoning triage, treatment, education, and prevention services to all Marylanders. This service is staffed by pharmacists and nurses who have specialized clinical toxicology training, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. All of our specialists have been certified by the AAPCC as Specialists in Poison Information. On average, each specialist has over 15 years of experience managing poisoning and overdose cases.

Pharmacy Hall

The 101,000 square foot building provides 45 labs for the schools of Medicine and pharmacy offices, seminar rooms, and a 100-seat auditorium for lectures and presentations. It is also home to the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Center.

Saratoga Building
The Saratoga Building is a mixed-use building which includes a high-rise garage and offices for the University President, the School of Pharmacy's department of Pharmaceutical Health Services Research and Maryland Poison Center, and Campus Facilities and Management. The school occupies the entire 12th floor of the building.
