The UB Microbiome Center facilitates research projects and
collaborations among the many faculty working in the field. Its
seed grants and pilot projects are interdisciplinary and intended
to lay the groundwork for larger proposals.
UB researchers are working across disciplines to find solutions
to multi-faceted challenges and to advance the frontiers of
knowledge. Many of these are pilot projects funded through Genome,
Environment and Microbiome Community of Excellence (GEM) and the
Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA).
