STATE OF THE UNIVERSITY

In his sixth State of the University address, Satish K. Tripathi told faculty, alumni and members of the UB community, “There is a momentum that I see here each and every day: UB is a university on the move, an institution on the rise.”


RESPECTING THE PAST
UB held a reinterment ceremony to commemorate the lives of 372 people buried between the mid-19th and early-20th centuries on the grounds of the former Erie County Poorhouse cemetery, situated along Bailey Avenue near the edge of what is today the university’s South Campus.

PROMISING TUMOR FIGHTER
Scientists from For-Robin Inc., a UB biotechnology spinoff, have published new scientific results showing the company’s cancer-fighting antibody can target, penetrate and kill human tumor cells effectively.
