Buffalo's Tradition of Discovery

Buffalo's primary medical research institutions are home to a critical mass of world-class researchers in both basic and applied sciences. From the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who first made protein structure determination possible, to the development of cutting-edge disciplines such as pharmacogenomics, Buffalo researchers have been - and continue to be - pioneers in fields of biomedical science.

Some noted biomedical advances from Buffalo include:

  • The PSA test
  • AVONEX®, the interferon treatment for multiple sclerosis
  • Genetic diagnostics
  • First automated structural determination of Gramicidin A
  • Fetal viability test
  • Patented high-throughput crystallization method
  • Timed-release insulin therapy
  • Anti-arrhythmia therapy made from tarantula venom
  • Artificial blood
  • Liquid ventilation, LiquiVent®
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Surfactant therapy for newborns, Infasurf®,
    that has reduced preterm mortality
  • Platinum coil for inoperable cranial aneurysms
  • The internal pacemaker
  • The methodology to screen infants for phenylketonuria (PKU)
  • "Lippes Loop" - intrauterine contraceptive device
  • "Smart Pill" for assessing gastrointestinal motility
