The Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS)
builds capacity internationally in the development of
biotechnology. Its collaborations and innovations strengthen the
university's leadership among a global community of
UB’s students participate in learning experiences that
build on core values and expand their perspectives as members of
the global community. They conduct research projects from the
perspective of a country with limited resources, which improves the
student experience while also building self-confidence and pride in
themselves and the university.
The center also engages partner institutions and countries,
providing novel opportunities for students and faculty to
collaborate in research with community impact.
