UB CAT Program

Sponsored by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR), the UB Center for Advanced Technology in Big Data and Health Sciences (UB CAT) is one of 15 designated Centers in the state dedicated to leveraging University resources to drive company growth. UB’s CAT is specifically focused on the intersection of big data and health sciences, particularly as it relates to drug development, medical devices, diagnostic tools and healthcare IT. 

The UB CAT provides eligible companies with project cost sharing grants to fund industry-university collaborations in big data and health sciences arenas. Through these cost sharing grants, NYS health sciences companies utilizing big data can leverage funding, access to expertise, equipment, and reduced rates on services, and supplies through UB to address challenges and achieve goals on the path to commercialization. 

If you are a University at Buffalo faculty member working with an industry partner in the field of big data and health sciences OR a health sciences company looking to supplement your R&D with university expertise, we want you to apply! The UB CAT provides matching grants for University at Buffalo faculty and industry partners to collaborate on applied research and R&D projects. We are looking for participation from candidates, like you, who may be interested in completing a CAT project.
