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).
