General Pediatrics Fund

Lab of Microbiology & Immunology Professor Terry Connell.

Pediatric medical research receives crucial financial support through this fund.

The General Pediatrics Fund supports pediatric medical research for the Department of Pediatrics within the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo 

The Department of Pediatrics comprises numerous divisions, all actively engaged in research and dedicated to excellence in patient care and teaching.

Much of the research conducted by our faculty has received national acclaim. The divisions function in unison as a department under the guidance and tutelage of the department chair.

Basic and clinical translational research is an essential aspect of our department’s core mission. Our faculty conduct their research in well-equipped, state-of-the-art facilities, and have a track record of accomplishments that has won them international recognition as innovators who have improved children’s health worldwide.

In addition, we train outstanding pediatricians who contribute significantly to the prevention, treatment and scientific advancement of diseases affecting children, adolescents and young adults.
