A community thrives when there is sustained engagement from all constituents. To that end, more than 85 University at Buffalo faculty, staff and student members are lending their expertise, time and energy to the GEM Community of Excellence.
GEM is advancing genome science through cutting-edge pilot research projects. Researchers partner across disciplines to investigate connections between the airway microbiome and cancer, probiotics and obesity treatments, and much more.
GEM community outreach provides opportunities for the public to engage in genomic and microbiomic exploration, empowering people with tools to better understand personal health issues. Pictured: 'Balancing Act' installation at the Buffalo Museum of Science
