We work with faculty from all over the university, including Hui Meng, PhD, of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, pictured above discussing ongoing research with her lab.

Find your niche in this lively research community by joining one of our faculty labs. We collaborate widely, bringing together distinct expertise within our department and well beyond it.

Buffalo offers rich opportunities for the professional development of all researchers, especially graduate research assistants and postdoctoral associates. Along with the wealth of research instrumentation at UB’s shared facilities, our location, close to both Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, offers access to research support and consultation with experts in an extraordinary variety of fields.

Collaborations Across UB

Our faculty regularly reach across disciplines for research collaborators.

Suzanne G. Laychock, PhD, collaborates with faculty from the medical school and farther afield:

Fraser J. Sim, PhD, also works with faculty within and beyond the medical school:

Collaborations Within Our Department

Our broad range of expertise permits interdisciplinary research even among our own faculty labs:

  • Fraser J. Sim, PhD, and Jerome A. Roth, PhD, are studying manganese toxicity on development of human neural stem and progenitor cells.
  • Margarita L. Dubocovich, PhD is working to discover molecules to act selectively on the MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptors—research that may lead to treatments for conditions such as circadian sleep disorders, jet lag, depression and cancer.
