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.
Studies from a UB research center are helping the Buffalo
Niagara region's public transportation agency improve bus
accessibility for passengers with disabilities.
UB engineers are examining misinformation shared through tweets
during hurricanes Harvey and Irma to help curb the spread of false
rumors on Twitter during emergencies.
Researchers at UB have developed what could be the next
advancement in computer security: a biometric log-in device that
scans and continually monitors a user's heart.
