Resources for the Research Community

From UB colleagues to local, national and international investigators, we support the entire research community by sharing data, performing specialized analyses and providing access to methods and expertise that bolster basic, clinical and translational studies.

Data Collections and Tools

Services and Facilities

This quantitative imaging research center conducts specialized neuroimaging studies in global and regional brain atrophy in multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative disorders, as well as many other quantitative MRI studies, cerebrospinal fluid imaging and optic nerve imaging.

Basic scientists and specialists with diverse clinical interests contribute to the advancement of knowledge in stroke prevention and treatment. Researchers can use the center’s scanning facilities through arrangement with the laboratory director.

One of the school’s Core Facilities, this laboratory offers academic and industrial investigators access to microscopy, flow cytometry, molecular imaging and real-time and quantitative PCR instrumentation for a nominal fee. Investigators may make reservations online with Calcium login credentials.

The Department of Structural Biology’s high-throughput screening laboratory prepares crystal-growth screening experiments for a nominal fee, which can be waived for academic users under certain circumstances. Investigators are encouraged to contribute their data to the crystallization database being compiled as part of ongoing in the department.

The lab permits researchers and students to work with their cadaveric material for surgical training, and learning and reviewing human anatomy. It also loans models to educators, legal professionals and others for demonstrations.

The Health Science Instrument Shops provide instrument repair, custom equipment design and fabrication, instrument modification and instrument testing, calibration and diagnosis.

ResearchMatch is a national database that allows researchers to easily and quickly recruit the number and type of human volunteers needed for clinical trials and research studies. The free, secure registry is open to individuals with specific diseases as well as healthy volunteers. A detailed search can yield a pool of potential volunteers who meet all study criteria. The service also may be used to almost instantly test the feasibility of a study idea at no cost.

The Office of Research and Graduate Education provides editing services for Jacobs School-affiliated clinical and research faculty, staff, and students to help with the preparation and/or revision of grant proposals, manuscripts, theses, etc.

This multidisciplinary center conducts antimicrobial testing as well as studies on biodegradation and preclinical testing in support of new drug applications, particularly grain imaging agents. In addition to its ongoing research projects, the center’s equipment and expertise support university and industrial interests.


Supplies the school and affiliated research programs with biochemical reagents.
