Four graduate students from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences were among the 15 finalists of UB’s inaugural 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

Stelios Andreadis, PhD

UB researchers have found that adult skin cells can be converted into neural crest cells without any genetic modification.

Justin Siemian; Craig Werner, PhD; Jennifer Martin; Zi-Jun Wang, PhD; Rathipriya Viswanathan; Lakeisha Lewter; Jianfeng Liu, PhD; and Jun-Xu Li, MD, PhD.

Graduate students and trainee researchers in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the neuroscience program presented research talks and posters at the 2017 Behavior, Biology and Chemistry: Translational Research in Addiction conference.

James D. Bangs, PhD

James D. Bangs, PhD, Grant T. Fisher Professor and chair of microbiology and immunology, has received National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding to continue his study of human African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness.

Rajendram Rajnarayanan, PhD, Anthony Jones and Margarita Dubocovich

Anthony J. Jones, a doctoral student in the neuroscience program, has received a two-year fellowship award in pharmacology/toxicology from the PhRMA Foundation.

Anthony A. Campagnari, PhD, ’84

Anthony A. Campagnari, PhD ’84, senior associate dean for research and graduate education, has received the 2016 Stockton Kimball Award for outstanding scientific achievement and service.

Jun-Xu Li, MD, PhD and pharmacology graduate students and trainees.

Graduate student and trainee researchers and their mentors in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology received positive feedback on in-depth studies they presented at the 2016 Behavior, Biology and Chemistry: Translational Research in Addiction meeting.

Meaghan Paganelli, PhD, and Gabriela Popescu, PhD
Two expert reviewers for the global literature review service F1000Prime have recommended a University at Buffalo paper identifying molecular mechanisms affected by the local anesthetic bupivacaine.
Anthony A. Campagnari, PhD

The Graduate School has recognized Anthony A. Campagnari, PhD ’84, professor of microbiology and immunology and medicine, with an Excellence in Graduate Student Mentoring Award.

Fraser J. Sim, PhD
University at Buffalo researchers are the first to identify solifenacin as a drug target to promote stem cell therapy for myelin-based disease, such as multiple sclerosis.
Jonathan F. Lovell, PhD

An international team led by Jonathan F. Lovell, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, has created a nanoparticle that may pave the way for “hypermodal” imaging — the ability to merge results from six different imaging modes using one contrast agent.

Ulas Sunar, PhD
University at Buffalo researchers have designed a biomedical device that could make chemotherapy more efficient, reduce its side effects and improve how doctors treat some of the most deadly forms of cancer.
Jennifer A. Surtees, PhD

With the goal of improving chemotherapy, Jennifer A. Surtees, PhD, associate professor of biochemistry, will study what makes cancer cells sensitive or resistant to different DNA-damaging drugs.

Frederick Sachs, PhD
Using mechanical stress, scientists at the University at Buffalo and colleagues have turned normal cells into ‘stem-like’ cells, suggesting a possible safe, new way to produce stem cells.
