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.

speakers. Previous Grand Rounds include:
