Campus Offices

The main office of the Great Lakes Center, faculty offices and labs are located on the third floor of the Science and Mathematics Complex.

Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Laboratory

In the Science and Mathematics Complex, scientists at the Environmental Toxicology Laboratory study the mechanism by which various environmental pollutants present in the Great Lakes induce adverse effects on human health and the health of other species to assess the risk associated with these chemicals. They also explore preventive measures for minimizing or eradicating various adverse health effects associated with human exposure to these contaminants.

Located on Buffalo's waterfront, the Field Station is the hub of the Great Lake Center's field work.

Research Vessels

The center's research fleet is kept at the Field Station. The variety of vessels available at the Great Lakes Center allows for a wide range of applications from research to education.



The Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management Office (WNY PRISM) works with local professionals, organizations and private citizens to improve, restore and protect aquatic and terrestrial resources from invasive species.
