The Lieber Institute is located in the new Johns Hopkins Bioscience Park in Baltimore, Maryland, a dramatic inner city reconstruction and expansion of the main Johns Hopkins Medical Campus.  

Collaborating with Johns Hopkins, Ron Daniels, President The Johns Hopkins University

The Lieber Institute chose to locate in Baltimore in the Johns Hopkins Bioscience Park because of the many opportunities for collaboration and partnership with the growing bioscience community in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. The location of the Institute, on the campus of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Hospital, facilitates a close relationship with the Johns Hopkins faculty and leadership. As an affiliate of Hopkins, Lieber Institute scientists and staff have full access to all research and clinical facilities of the JHU Medical Campus and additional resources, including the Kennedy Krieger Institute located within walking distance.

Located in the Rangos Building, the flagship building in the Bioscience Park, the Institute’s facilities include a large fully outfitted state-of-the-art general laboratory and specialty in-house facilities for organic chemistry, genetics, cell and tissue culture, advanced imaging and laser capture microscopy, neuropathology, molecular biology, electrophysiology, and animal physiology and behavioral testing.



In addition to facilities here in Baltimore, LIBD scientists are engaged in several continuing scientific partnerships with the intramural programs of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), located only forty-five minutes from the Institute. 


“What’s exciting about Lieber and the spirit of collaboration and brave innovation that it brings, is that it in turn is drawing in collaborations with other institutions.”
