The UB Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences is an international hub for innovation that brings together scientific disciplines in a nontraditional approach to build capacity to address regional as well as global challenges.
The Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences has some of UB's top faculty with expertise in the areas of Global Biomedical Sciences.
The UB Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences currently provides mentoring for young investigators from partner universities in Africa and the Caribbean region. The Center also fosters an environment where scientists interact with other investigators at the University at Buffalo and the academic medical centers of the State University of New York - Global Health Institute. This environment is created through visiting scholar programs, web-based approaches that facilitate real time research mentoring and collaboration, as well as virtual seminars, conferences and workshops.
The Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) aligns with other university and research centers to better integrate biomedical research, develop technology and address thematic global health challenges.
The Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) builds capacity internationally to promote the development of biotechnology, health care system innovation and biomedical research. Its collaborations and innovation approaches strengthen the university's leadership among a global community of scholars. 
The University at Buffalo has three campuses: the North Campus in suburban Amherst, the South Campus on Main Street in a North Buffalo neighborhood and the growing Downtown Campus, encompassing several buildings in downtown Buffalo.
