BUFFALO, N.Y. — The new Department of Materials Design and Innovation (MDI) in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University at Buffalo has just completed its first full academic year of operation and it is marking that milestone with the Erich Bloch Symposium in Materials Design and Innovation at UB.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The idea behind Efferent Labs – implanting a device containing living cells into the body to act as a biologic sensor – has attracted the attention of the scientific community.

Suzanne Rosenblith, associate dean of undergraduate programs at Clemson University, has been named dean of UB's Graduate School of Education effective July 1.
