UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND BIOTECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE
In 1985, General Assembly authorized Maryland Biotechnology Institute (MBI) at University of Maryland. Institute united diverse research disciplines across broad spectrum of biotechnology within University System of Maryland. Institute also provided a core of expertise and state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to research, training, and economic development in biotechnology.

Biotechnology is any technique that uses living organisms or substances from those organisms to make or modify a product, perform services, improve plants or animals, or develop microorganisms for specific uses. These techniques include use of novel technologies, such as recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), cell fusion, and other new bioprocesses.

Administered by University System of Maryland Administration, Institute consisted of four research centers: Center for Advanced Research in Biotechnology; Center for Biosystems Research; Center of Marine Biotechnology; and Medical Biotechnology Center. Institute also administered Center for Bioscience Outreach, Education, and Ethics. In research and academic activities, each center worked closely with government laboratories, other academic research institutions, and State's biotechnology business community.

In June 2009, University System of Maryland Board of Regents voted to close Institute and align Centers with other University System of Maryland institutions. This restructuring was to be completed by June 30, 2010.

Research centers formerly under Institute were reconfigured on July 1, 2010, and integrated into other University System of Maryland institutions.
