Office of Research Advancement

The Office of Research Advancement supports the university’s research and scholarly community in the pursuit of external grant and research funding. Comprehensive administrative and technical support is available to researchers as they form their research teams, identify collaborators, refine their projects and develop their proposals. Working with UB faculty, our goal is to help create highly competitive proposals to support promising research and advance university initiatives.
