A Word from the Vice President


Published January 16, 2013 This content is archived.

Welcome to Discovery, an electronic newsletter from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development.

Alexander N. Cartwright

On this page, we will bring you stories and news from around the university relating to research and scholarship: everything from research opportunities to faculty awards to new inventions and other announcements that highlight research and creative activities of UB faculty, fellows, and students.

In the spirit of UB Green, Discovery will not be printed; instead it will arrive as an HTML document with embedded links that can be read online, or printed out if desired. Think of it as a snapshot of the most important and interesting research news at the moment, a news sheet that you can tuck into your virtual back pocket for easy reading at some point during your day.

Some items teased on this page link to full stories on UB Reporter; others are prepared in our office, and link to our own site. If you have an exciting bit of research-related news that you’d like to share, please let us know—we are always interested in spreading the word about exciting breakthroughs, awards, and other developments among our research community at UB.

We hope you enjoy it, and as always, we welcome comments and suggestions for future issues of Discovery.


Alexander Cartwright, Vice President for Research and Economic Development
