Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR)

The OVPR oversees and supports UB’s research enterprise, and seeks to foster an atmosphere that stimulates creativity, collaboration and community. Its staff provides administrative support for campus-wide research efforts, advocates on behalf of UB’s research needs and maximizes the benefits of UB’s research.

Shared Laboratories and Equipment Facilities

UB’s shared instrumentation and laboratory facilities are used by UB faculty, investigators at our affiliated institutions and business partners interested in renting equipment for data analysis, training and product testing.

University Libraries

Libraries are central to UB research, providing faculty, students and visiting scholars with comprehensive holdings and subject-matter librarians serving our schools, departments and research centers.

Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities

An increasing number of grants now require the use of undergraduate students in laboratories and scholarly pursuits. UB's Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (CURCA) leads SUNY in connecting investigators and scholars to UB undergraduates who are prepared for and, in many cases, already engaged in academic research on campus.
