Whether you need interns, new employees or training for your current workforce, the CMI can connect you with the right people and programs to help your company succeed.
As part of UB — a premier research-intensive public university — we offer access to world-class faculty and resources. These include UB’s Center for Computational Research (CCR) and UB's New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics & Life Sciences (CBLS).
The mission of UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics (CMI) is to leverage UB’s cutting edge materials science and advanced manufacturing expertise to drive innovation and critical R&D activities that directly impact private sector growth in key areas including advanced manufacturing, life sciences and energy.
The CMI also serves as a community-based resource to help manufacturing firms spark innovation working in tandem with the Buffalo Manufacturing Works.
Our impact is measured primarily through the creation of private sector jobs in materials science and advanced manufacturing with related secondary measures (e.g., increased company revenues, funding and company capital investments; as well as university jobs; grants; and intellectual property activity.)
