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.


Preclinical research by UB and Tetra Therapeutics explores how a new drug they discovered may support nerve health and prevent dementia in Alzheimer’s patients.


A UB-led study finds that resveratrol, found in grapes, berries and red wine, displays anti-stress effects, making it a potential alternative to drugs for treating depression and anxiety.


A UB-led study describes how researchers wirelessly controlled a key gene for human growth using laser light, a process that could lead to new cancer and schizophrenia treatments.


A UB-led study provides one of the first empirical analyses of “survivor guilt,” deepening the understanding of trauma caused by near-miss experiences.


Researchers from around the world came to UB to exchange ideas and share the latest in their work with the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s most powerful particle accelerator.
