Collaborative Research Efforts

Collaborative research is an organizing principle for our school’s basic, clinical and translational studies.

Investigators are encouraged to self-associate with focus groups to elucidate the underpinnings of human disease and discover new treatments.

The university’s five health-sciences schools and its School of Engineering and Applied Sciences provide a fertile matrix for multidisciplinary collaborations.

Researchers also are strongly encouraged to explore shared ideas within the community of scientists at the university, as well as at affiliated research institutions in Buffalo, such as Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute.

Gates Vascular Institute and Clinical and Translational Research Center.

UB is leading the Buffalo Translational Consortium, which is comprised of 11 regional partners whose shared vision is to improve the health of our Western New York community and the nation.

New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences.

This center is a hub for life sciences innovation and technology-based economic development driving scientific discovery, facilitating collaboration among academia, industry and the public sector to create jobs that directly impact the region’s and state’s economies.

Pilot and Collaborative Translational and Clinical Studies.

Provides resources to perform pilot studies to enhance the development of clinical and translational research at UB.

Technology Transfer office.
