Economic well-being for low-income families in the U.S. is often
determined by basic requirements for essentials such as food,
shelter and clothing, but a new UB study suggests that such a
definition is unrealistically narrow.
UB researchers have generated human serotonin neurons from human
fibroblasts, the cells that give rise to connective tissue in the
body.They say their findings are applicable to generating many
other previously inaccessible human cell types.
It is my pleasure to serve as chair of the 2015 UB Employees
Campaign for the Community. This year is a bit different. It is my
understanding that it has been several years since a dean was
chair—I hope to represent all of UB in the best light
possible. I am aware that my service rests on the very broad
shoulders of our previous chairs. My special thanks to Sean
Sullivan for his passionate efforts to support the UB community in
making a significant impact on the lives of those in our external
community and my hope is to do the same this year.
