UB awarded $21.7 million to boost medical research

Published February 10, 2020

The Buffalo News, Business First and other Western New York media report that UB has received a new five-year, $21.7 million Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health, continuing momentum generated since UB first received the CTSA in 2015. The article notes that UB has focused on encouraging more people of color to participate in clinical research trials, the backbone of medical advances. “We know that clinical research is associated with better health care, and so we have developed some novel approaches and have had some early successes engaging people who've not been otherwise engaged. This is a NIH priority,” said Timothy Murphy, SUNY distinguished professor, and senior associate dean for clinical and translational research in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Niagara Frontier Publications, WIVB-TV and WBEN-AM were among outlets carrying stories.
