Our Research Projects

We focus our research on designing and manufacturing products and services for the global health market. Our aim is to surmount challenges in cases where resources are limited, and to meet the World Health Organization’s stated goal of increasing patient access to diagnostics.

The UB Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) is the administrative coordinating center for the SUNY Global Health Institutes’s (GHI) co-director. The institute enables global health programs at the SUNY academic health centers and system-wide across the campuses. It also fosters collaboration with corporate, economic and international partners as innovative leaders in education, training and research initiatives.
Biomedical clinical research requires an organized, monitored and quality-assured program that encourages interaction among faculty members, students, patients, funding agencies and the pharmaceutical research industry. As a result the West Indies Ministry of Health and UWI are collaborating to ensure that GLP, GCLP and ISO accreditation standards are met and sustained. They will be looking at data management systems along with the country's strategic plan for health information technology and a digital records system.
In collaboration with the SUNY-UWI Center for Leadership and Sustainable Development and the SUNY Global Health Institute.
