SUNY Upstate conference hopes to build relationships between CNY’s basic and clinical scientists March 29

Forming relationships between Central New York’s basic and clinical scientists is the goal of an Upstate Medical University conference titled “Translational Research: Bridging the Gap,” to be held Thursday, March 29 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Sheraton University Hotel and Conference Center, 801 University Avenue, Syracuse. The conference is sponsored by SUNY Upstate’s Department of Research Administration and its Clinical Trials Office.

According to John Lucas, Ph.D., vice provost for research at SUNY Upstate, the conference will offer insight into how researchers in the clinical trials, technology transfer and biomedical research areas can better communicate among themselves, which may lead to a quicker translation of research results from the laboratory to clinical practice.

Conference speakers include faculty from SUNY Upstate, Baylor College of Medicine, Cornell University and a representative of the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

Registration deadline is Tuesday, March 27. There is no fee to attend the program, but space is limited. Contact the Upstate Clinical Trials Office 315-464-5476 for more information.
