CBE@UB combines excellence and collegiality to provide an outstanding environment for our faculty, staff, and students. In the 2010 NRC assessment of doctoral programs, CBE@UB placed in the top 10 nationally in the categories of publications per faculty member and awards per faculty member. Particular areas of research strength and focus in the department include bioengineering, nanomaterials engineering, and molecular and multiscale modeling. At present, we have 18 faculty members with $300K of annual research expenditures per faculty, 130 graduate, and over 300 undergraduate students. Our faculty includes 3 members of the National Academy of Engineering and 7 NSF CAREER Award recipients. Over the next five years we anticipate continuous growth, which is supported by university-wide strategic plans for investment in energy, nanotechnology, materials, bioengineering, and related areas where CBE plays a key role.

Along with a strong core of bioengineering and materials science and engineering faculty in CBE and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, UB offers rich collaborative opportunities in the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Arts and Sciences; the Center for Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute; Roswell Park Cancer Institute; and the new Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics.
