Applying to the Lab:

UB has a terrific scientific environment and is widely viewed as a great place to live and work. We are located in a new building, the Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. The lab is well equipped for standard molecular biology techniques and is very well equipped for genomics and bioinformatics. People in the lab work on experimental and/or computational projects, producing a lab environment that is diverse, interactive, intellectually stimulating, productive and fun.

Grad School applicants

Prospective PhD students interested in the Buck lab should apply to the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences, a flexible program that allows students to do lab rotations in medical school departments during their first year.

Prospective Master students should apply directly to the Department of Biochemistry.

Undergraduate applicants

The lab takes undergraduates in their junior year or earlier, for intensive training to carry out an independent research project. We are especially interested in training students who commit to conducting research each semester until graduation and students who are considering pursuing research as a career. Research can be conducted for course credit during fall and spring, and funding is often available to support full-time paid research in the summer. To apply, please send a resume to Dr. Buck.
