Research Highlights

See research accomplishments and recogition of our faculty and students, from honors to publications to sponsored research awards. 

The National Science Foundation has funded Josep Jornet and collaborators from the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, to use brain organoid models to explore brain-machine interfaces.
UB start-up, Sunny Clean Water, was started by EE Associate Professor Qiaoqiang Gan and his graduate student, Matt Singer.
Professor Sun's project, “Towards Metamaterial-inspired Networking for Wireless Devices in Extreme Environments,” earned this prestigious award from the National Science Foundation.
"Sunlight-powered purifier could clean water for the impoverished" highlights Professor Gan's solar device research which could help address global drinking water shortages.
The article, "Wanted: In-flight Drone Charging, Itty-Bitty Spy Cams, and More" discusses a recent Broad Agency Announcement from the U.S. Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, and includes Professor Jornet's thoughts on how to achieve one of their requirements: a mini wireless video transmitter.
Josep Jornet (along with UB professors Albert Titus, Mark Ehrensberger, and Tom Furlani) will collaborate on the project, developing a new class of programmable electrical stimulation devices with integrated sensor and communications technologies, for the Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data Analytics (BIG).
The project, "Microfluidic 3D Capillary Network Test Phantom for Subdermal Vascular Imaging," will be funded by NSF I/UCRC CITeR (Center for Identification Technology Research).
"The Interlaced Partition Multiplier" by Christopher Fritz and Adly Fam published in IEEE Transactions on Computers.
Qiaoqiang Gan, Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, has his research featured on the homepage of the National Science Foundation website.  
"Good Code Sets from Complementary Pairs via Symmetrical/Anti-symmetrical Chips", co-authored by Ravi Kadlimatti and Adly T. Fam  has been accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronics Systems (TAES).
Professor Adly T. Fam and former student, Dr. Aaron Roof, have been issued patent number 8,731,293 "REPRESENTING SIGNALS FOR CLASSIFICATION." 
Professor Mastronarde to conduct research on scheduling mission-critical flows in congested and contested airborne network environments
"Plasmonic interferometric sensor arrays for high-performance label-free biomolecular detection" that has been featured as a cover article of the journal Lab on a Chip.
Networks of nanometer-scale machines offer exciting potential applications in medicine, industry, environmental protection and defense, but until now there’s been one very small problem: the limited capability of nanoscale antennas fabricated from traditional metallic components.
Professor Edward Furlani received an NSF SBIR subaward for the development of a Macroscale Knudsen Pumped Solar Thermal Collector.
Two articles, co-authored by Professor Bird, have appeared in this highly recognized journal in the field of electronics.
