Support the University at Buffalo Center for Immunology through this fund.
Established in 1973, this fund supports the operation of the University at Buffalo Center for Immunology as determined by the director of the Center.
The Witebsky Center is named for Ernest Witebsky, MD, the founding chair of what is now UB’s Department of Microbiology and Immunology. In 1967, he was appointed director of the Center for Immunology. Upon his death in 1969, the center was renamed in his honor. Along with Niels Klendshoj, Witebsky isolated the B-antigen found in human blood, a discovery that made blood transfusions safer. Witebsky and his associates also conducted important studies in autoimmune disease and its relation to thyroiditis, Addison’s disease and myasthenia gravis.
In the world of medicine, there is always more that we can do. More physicians we can train. More discoveries we can make. More lives we can save. Now, even as we celebrate all we have recently achieved, we continue to look forward to the possibilities ahead. Bold ambitions require big investments—and generous support. Together, we will continue to build on our shared success and lead the way toward the future of medicine.
