“University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Innovative Biomedical Resources' Translational Genomics Laboratory – Baltimore, Maryland."

Overview of Services

The Translational Genomics Laboratory (TGL) is a CAP (College of American Pathologists) accredited and CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) compliant laboratory, capable of providing support to clinical and translational genetic/genomic studies (CAP# 8017554) (CLIA# 21D2027356). TGL is part of the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Program for Personalized and Genomic Medicine (PPGM) and the Center for Innovative Biomedical Resources (CIBR).

The services offered by the TGL are similar to those offered in traditional academic genomic core labs, except that these assays are validated under CLIA which allows them to be used in the clinical decision-making process in research protocols and for routine patient care.
