The Center for Protein Therapeutics (CPT) works with leading pharmaceutical companies to advance the development of next-generation protein drugs, providing improved effectiveness and convenience for users.
The Milo Gibaldi Computation Laboratory is named after Dr. Milo Gibaldi, a pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics pioneer who served as a faculty member at the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences from 1966-1978.
Computation and visualization play a key role in the educational and research activities of The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The department, school, and university have invested extensively in computational and visualization resources.
The facility serves a variety of research projects. A major focus and area of local expertise is the analysis of biological and artificial lipid bilayer membranes (liposomes). DSC is particularly useful in the investigation of small-molecule/membrane interactions. TGA can be used to detect residual solvent in amorphous and crystalline solids, and to characterize some polymorphic states such as solvates.
The Pharmaceutical Genetics Laboratory (PGL) affords faculty and graduate students use of current molecular genetic technology to address questions concerning gene expression, bioinformatics and genotyping.
