SUNY Global Health Institute

Providing leadership across the SUNY system

The UB Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) is the administrative coordinating center for the SUNY Global Health Institutes’s (GHI) co-director. The institute enables global health programs at the SUNY academic health centers and system-wide across the campuses. It also fosters collaboration with corporate, economic and international partners as innovative leaders in education, training and research initiatives.

GHI is increasing SUNY-wide access and participation by students, faculty and staff in global-health research and education. It also promotes cross-campus faculty initiatives.

The institute uses an integrated approach to increase its competitive advantage when seeking funding from state, federal and international agencies, and philanthropic organizations.  

GHI is creating a consulting and services process for low income countries so they might access SUNY faculty / staff expertise in areas of clinical education and research program development.
