Research Centers

  • Center for Drug Delivery
    The Center for Drug Delivery is a dynamic academic home for investigators interested in discovering and advancing innovative drug delivery and therapy strategies.
  • Center of Excellence in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
    The Center of Excellence in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (CEPKPD) encompasses areas of departmental and university interests that include mathematical pharmacology, pharmacometrics, and quantitative and systems pharmacology (QSP). 
  • Center for Protein Therapeutics
    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.
  • Center for Proteomics
    The Center for Proteomics conducts cutting-edge research in the following areas:

Research Facilities

  • Milo Gibaldi Computation Laboratory
    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.
  • Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic Analysis
    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.
  • Circular Dichroism Facility
    Through a grant from the National Institutes of Health, Division of Research Resources, our facility has two state-of-the-art CD instruments, JASCO J815, operated as a shared facility.
  • DSC/TGA Facility
    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.
  • Fluorescence Facility
    The facility serves a variety of research projects involving protein structure, drug-protein interactions, biological membrane structure and function, and pharmaceutical formulation.
  • Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS) Facility
    We have re-organized our facilities, concentrating our triple-quadrupole/small molecule analysis resources on the UB South Campus (314B Pharmacy Building) and creating a core facility focused upon proteomics and ultra-high sensitivity biopharmaceutical analysis on the UB Downtown Campus, located in the NY State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences.

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.
