The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will play host to the “Igniting Hope” conference, a collaboration among UB and several entities. Timothy F. Murphy, MD, senior associate dean of clinical and translational research and director of UB’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, said it’s a chance for the university to show what its researchers can do. “If you look at all of the people nationally who participate in clinical studies, less than 10 percent are underrepresented minorities,” he said.
