Message from the Dean
SUNY Upstate Medical University has a strong base of scientific researchers and a relevant clinical setting which provides students with an excellent environment to learn and grow.
As a graduate student, you can receive outstanding training in any of our disease-focused areas, as well as within the basic sciences. You also may receive training in bioimaging; proteomics and genomics; stem cell biology; structural biology or systems biology.
We promise a first-rate education from mentors dedicated to your intellectual growth and career development. Our faculty researchers continue to capture major grants to support their work, which means a variety of well-funded laboratories to choose from when you select your thesis lab.
Upstate continues to grow despite hard economic times. We are expanding our substantial research space, including the Cancer Research Institute and a new addition to the Institute for Human Performance. We have also built the Central New York Biotech Research Center, a bio-incubator.
All of this takes place at Upstate Medical University, located in a beautiful part of the country that enjoys all four seasons. Central New York offers a reasonable cost of living, with cultural and recreational attractions essential to a well-rounded life.
