A community thrives when there is sustained engagement from all constituents. To that end, more than 85 University at Buffalo faculty, staff and student members are lending their expertise, time and energy to the GEM Community of Excellence.
GEM is advancing genome science through cutting-edge pilot research projects. Researchers partner across disciplines to investigate connections between the airway microbiome and cancer, probiotics and obesity treatments, and much more.
Genomic themes are integrated across the curriculum at UB, offering students the chance to explore the "big" questions that relate to data, genomics and the microbiome.
Engaging next generations
GEM partners with K-12 teachers and schools throughout the region to embed genomic and microbiomic literacy in the curriciulum through hands-on activities in classrooms, on-campus lab visits, and special events.
The Coalesce Center for Biological Art provides a dedicated studio laboratory for biological art, graduate positions, interdisciplinary coursework, artist residency opportunities, DIY workshops and exhibitions.
