UB Center for Advanced Biomedical and Bioengineering Technology (UB CAT) Grants Awarded
You First Services, Inc. has been awarded two “University at Buffalo Center for Advanced Biomedical and Bioengineering Technology (UB CAT) Grants” on June 25, 2015. The first project, “Phase II: Xerostomia Dry Mouth Relief IRB Clinical Trial,” was developed with the Center for Dental Studies at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo. The Center for Dental Studies has a productive and successful history of working within the industry. Perhaps the most important strength of the center, is its ability to provide comprehensive services such as developing research protocols, performing basic scientific and clinical studies for new product introduction and/or product enhancement, coordinating multi-center research, and facilitating technology transfer to industry. In partnership with the industry, The State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, has participated in the introduction of several products for both the dental profession and the general public, ranging from dental materials to topical and systemic medications.
The second project, “Removal of Biofilms from Catheters,” has also been awarded with the above mentioned grant. You First Services, in coordination with multiple University at Buffalo departments, is pursuing this exciting clinical research to introduce innovative technology to combat catheter acquired infections.
The mission of the University at Buffalo Center for Advanced Biomedical and Bioengineering Technology (UB CAT), located within the NYS Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Science, is to support university-industry collaboration for New York State-based companies with promising technologies of tomorrow.
