Our faculty support graduate student-led research during their studies in our department. They have helped outstanding students to receive prestigious dissertation funds from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, Dissertation Fellowships and Mark Diamond Research Fund at UB’s College of Arts and Sciences, and Top Paper Awards at various international and national conferences. Some faculty provide research support to students through their funded grants. Some students also work independently on conference papers and publications with peer support. Below are some examples of such journal publications.
