Why Partner with Us?

Whether you want to create new breakthroughs in science and medicine, improve the quality of life in Buffalo Niagara, or help create new jobs, we are eager to work with you. 

UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics & Life Sciences (CBLS) has a dual mission — to foster new biomedical discoveries across our life sciences research areas, and to promote economic development in Buffalo Niagara and across New York State. If your organization is interested in either one of these missions, we encourage you to talk with us about partnership opportunities.
