In a difficult year, UB faculty, staff and students continued to break ground in fields that ranged from biology and climate science to history and design. Through discoveries large and small, UB’s physicians, chemists, geologists, writers, historians, sociologists and engineers engaged in a vital, shared mission: to learn about the world around us, and to make it better. These research findings are just a few examples of the knowledge that UB scholars contributed to the world in 2020. In a wrap-up of 2020's top research news, reporters Charlotte Hsu and Cory Nealon selected research by Vincent Lynch
and Kathryn Medler,
as two of the year's top twenty research stories.
