The University of Maryland at College Park and the University of Maryland at Baltimore recently announced their coordinated plans for the Center for Sports Medicine, Health and Human Performance, a key component of the Cole Field House project.
 
"The Center for Sports Medicine, Health and Human Performance at Cole Field House will deliver to the state's citizens the power of partnership," University of Maryland at College Park President Wallace Loh said. "Bringing together clinicians and scientists from the state's two biggest public research universities under one roof creates connections that will contribute to breakthroughs in human health."
 
Through the center, the universities will be able to study sports related conditions, including traumatic brain injuries and their ongoing consequences for victims. The universities are set to receive $3 million in funding through the MPowering the State Initiative, which will go toward research projects involving scientists and engineers in College Park and investigators and clinicians in Baltimore.
 
"We envision an ambitious research enterprise at the Center for Sports Medicine, Health and Human Performance," University of Maryland at Baltimore President Dr. Jay Perman said. "We believe our initial $3 million investment will lead to million-dollar, multidisciplinary grants in critical areas of neuroscience and traumatic brain injury."
