Our faculty has established a clinical research infrastructure dedicated to research in pharmacotherapy for infectious diseases, transplantation, oncology, neurology, geriatrics, cardiovascular, medical imaging, critical care, therapeutic drug monitoring, drug-drug interactions, and medication adherence. Working in top-flight research centers such as Center for Drug Discovery and Experimental Therapeutics (CDDET), the Pharmacotherapy Research Center (PRC), Pharmaceutical Genetics Laboratory, UB's renowned researchers work across disciplines to further exciting new biomedical research that improves people's lives. UB is more than just an education, it's an experience. Students receive the one-on-one attention of a smaller program, but reap the benefits of a world-class research center.
