Our faculty participate in vibrant focus groups that draw on expertise from the larger community of scientists at UB and at affiliated research institutions in Buffalo.
Our faculty have formed intradepartmental and multidisciplinary focus groups to collaborate with other scientists who share their interest in specific experimental problems.
We have designed our curriculum based on the belief that we expect our graduates to be the sum of our collective expertise and to emerge better trained than any one of us. Students are therefore encouraged to be active members of our focus groups. This involvement provides them with regular contact with faculty and other students throughout Buffalo’s larger scientific community. The groups also sponsor seminars and organize workshops and symposia open to all researchers and student collaborators.
We play a leading role in the Molecular Recognition in
Biological Systems and Bioinformatics (MRBSB) research group,
one of eight UB 2020
strategic strengths. MRBSB seeks to translate laboratory
discoveries into treatments for human disease.
