A new center combining business, medicine and engineering to create new solutions is coming to the Baltimore-based University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Biotech inventor and entrepreneur Robert E. Fischell announced a $20 million gift for the Center for Bioengineering Innovation earlier this month.

Funding will be used to establish the center, which will bear Fischell’s name, and for construction of a new 450,000 sq. ft. building called Health Sciences Research Facility III.
