  • Open architecture laboratories and support space for 25 Principal Investigators with translational research programs
  • An active biorepository and specimen processing laboratory with associated informatics that will open in 2015.
  • An imaging facility, devoted exclusively to research, including
    • 3 Tesla MRI imager for human subjects
    • PET-CT scanner for human subjects
    • 9.4 Tesla Micro MRI
  • A biosciences incubator including laboratories and office space that will facilitate formation of startup companies as spinoffs from research discoveries involving UB investigators or intellectual property.
