Research at Upstate
All research at SUNY Upstate aims to understand health and disease. While the majority of our research occurs in our basic science laboratories, it also goes far beyond the lab to many other areas of focus.
While research allows the investigator to explore intriguing questions, the larger purpose is to deepen understanding—and eventually translate discoveries into treatments or actions that improve the quality of people’s lives.
With our cancer research, for example, our students and faculty investigate highly specific topics such as the role of viruses and genetics in the disease. While that work goes on, our physicians and other faculty members take part in national cancer trials.
Because we are part of an academic medical center (one of only 125 in the country), our researchers have access to world-class facilities in and outside of our own University Hospital. These facilities, and our dedicated faculty and students, help SUNY Upstate focus on one of its many important roles: medically relevant research.
