Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OVPRED)
The OVPRED oversees and supports UB’s research
enterprise, and seeks to foster an atmosphere that stimulates
creativity, collaboration and community. Its staff provides
administrative support for campus-wide research efforts, advocates
on behalf of UB’s research needs and maximizes the benefits
of UB’s research.
UB’s shared instrumentation and laboratory facilities are
used by UB faculty, investigators at our affiliated institutions
and business partners interested in renting equipment for data
analysis, training and product testing.
An increasing number of grants now require the use of
undergraduate students in laboratories and scholarly pursuits. UB's
Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (CURCA)
leads SUNY in connecting investigators and scholars to UB
undergraduates who are prepared for and, in many cases, already
engaged in academic research on campus.
