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 researchers have made a big step toward identifying a hypervirulent strain of flesh-eating pathogen that can blind or kill even healthy people.


UB researchers have discovered that barley can illuminate the throat and GI tract when struck by a laser, making it a natural tool for diagnosing swallowing and gut disorders.


New UB research finds prolonged vitamin D insufficiency, common in most American adults, may lead to impaired physical endurance and performance later in life.
