Clinical Research at UB
The State University of New York at Buffalo (UB) clinician/scientists are dedicated to furthering knowledge in the areas of medical, biological, pharmaceutical, and dental research. UB and the Western New York community benefit by engaging and participating in a wide spectrum of clinical trials and research studies that investigate innovative approaches to the prevention and treatment of new and prevailing conditions and diseases, and improve our quality of life.
How does the community benefit?
By participating in our clinical trials and studies, volunteers have access to cutting-edge treatments and therapies, and care under the city’s best doctors and health care professionals. Our volunteers also benefit by knowing that their participation helps to further medical knowledge and treatment options for everyone.
