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.


Studies from a UB research center are helping the Buffalo Niagara region's public transportation agency improve bus accessibility for passengers with disabilities.


UB engineers are examining misinformation shared through tweets during hurricanes Harvey and Irma to help curb the spread of false rumors on Twitter during emergencies.


Researchers at UB have developed what could be the next advancement in computer security: a biometric log-in device that scans and continually monitors a user's heart.
