In many universities, undergraduate students are barred from conducting research until their junior or senior year. At UB, every student—from freshman to doctoral candidate—can get involved with the cutting-edge research happening every day.
Research projects take students from the tiniest specimen under the microscope to the highest peaks of the Eastern Alps, and everywhere in between. Examples of College research projects include:
Faculty members are always conducting research. A good first step is to learn more about your department's faculty research projects, either by reading faculty bios or asking in person. Once you've discovered a project that interests you, contact your department or the professor directly to find out how you can become involved. You can also learn about current opportunities in the ELN Project Portal.
Indvidual students and groups of students can apply for project funding and conference funding through the UB Experiential Learning Network.
