Research in SUNY Upstate's College of Graduate Studies focuses on the most prevalent and pressing human health issues: Cancer; Disorders of the Nervous System; Infectious Diseases; Diabetes/Metabolic Disorders/ Cardiovascular Diseases.
Our four areas of concentration account for 80 percent of the campus' funded research. Research in these areas can be found in every department and emphasize some of the most intriguing areas of biomedical investigation.
Structural, molecular and systems biology informs and supports research in all of the disease-related pillars. Recent technological advances permit investigators to understand diseases at a molecular and cellular level and to develop targeted treatments. Our investigators include nationally recognized experts in all of these fields who are at the forefront of understanding the molecular basis of health and diease.
As part of an academic medical center, our graduate students can take advantage of the plentiful intellectual capital and world-class research facilities in their midst. Our students join well-respected researchers on the faculty in a multi-disciplinary approach to asking—and sometimes answering—important scientific questions. It is a tremendous opportunity, and our students are ready for the challenge.
