Advances in Healthcare through Big Data Analytics and Medical Genomics

In 2014, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, announced his intentions to authorize a $100 million collaboration between the University at Buffalo and the NY Genome Center in New York City.  UB was selected as co-lead for the effort because of its expertise in high performance computing, combined with recognized national leadership in genomics and analysis of patient data.  UB has vast capabilities within its Center for Computational Research, New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, and Institute for Healthcare Informatics. Each of these UB research centers reside on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC).
