Center for Multisource Information Fusion

The Center for Multisource Information Fusion focuses on how users can
be helped to assess complex situations more accurately by combining
effectively the core evidence in the massive, diverse and sometimes
conflicting data received from multiple sources.

Toshiba Stroke Research Center

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and the third leading cause of death in North America. In 1991, with grants from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation and the Diasonics Corporation of America, Drs. L. N. Hopkins and Lee Guterman founded a neuroendovascular research laboratory to investigate new ways to prevent and treat stroke. Today their laboratory has evolved into the Toshiba Stroke Research Center at the University at Buffalo, the most advanced angiographic research facility in the world.
