Our Research Changes Lives

UB students and faculty are applying their knowledge to a diversity of projects addressing local and global challenges. The research we do touches lives around the world and drives the growth of the Buffalo-Niagara and New York State economies.


UB physicists are using magnetic fields to trigger neurons in the brains of mice and induce body movements, a breakthrough that may lead to improved treatment for neurological diseases such as Parkinson's.


Brief bouts of intense physical activity may help reverse frailty in older humans, according to the dramatic results of a study in mice led by UB researchers.


Estrogen therapy, which is used to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, also lowers the risk of severe gum disease by nearly 50 percent, found a UB study.
