The Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) builds capacity internationally to promote the development of biotechnology, health care system innovation and biomedical research. Its collaborations and innovation approaches strengthen the university's leadership among a global community of scholars.
UB’s students participate in learning experiences that build on core values and expand their perspectives as members of the global community. They conduct research projects from the perspective of investigators in a country with limited resources, which improves the student experience while also building self-confidence and pride in themselves and the university.
The center also engages partner institutions and countries, providing novel opportunities for students and faculty to collaborate in research with community impact.
