Our Research Changes Lives

UB students and faculty are applying their knowledge to a diversity of projects addressing local and global challenges. The research we do touches lives around the world and drives the growth of the Buffalo-Niagara and New York State economies.


UB has received $4.5 million from SUNY to recruit leading faculty members in the areas of robotics, artificial intelligence, pharmacology and X-ray laser science.


A UB geology professor has devised a soil mapping system that's much faster and more detailed than traditional methods, and which can lead to more sustainable farming practices.


Male police officers who work the afternoon shift are twice as likely to report being fatigued, which makes them more vulnerable to accidents, errors and stress, a UB study finds.


A UB engineering PhD candidate has developed a system that converts the heart's vibrational energy into electricity to power pacemakers, eliminating the need for batteries.
