Maryland Blended Reality Center

Maryland Blended Reality Center: Our Mission

The Maryland Blended Reality Center is dedicated to advancing visual computing for healthcare and innovative training for professionals in high-impact areas. Funded by MPowering the State, our Center brings the University of Maryland, College Park and the University of Maryland, Baltimore together in:

  • developing research in virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) technology;
  • training students for positions in healthcare and medicine;
  • fostering new opportunities for research, scholarship and creativity that are not only interdisciplinary at their core, but will define future disciplines at the intersection of VR and AR and health care; and
  • creating a new model for community engagement in bringing together law enforcement officials and citizens in immersive communal environments of safety and trust.
