Research Making a Difference
In school classrooms, businesses and communities throughout New York State, across the U.S. and beyond, University at Albany researchers make a difference. Our research produces both fundamental and practical benefits that look to a better future for each and every one of us.
In this issue, we highlight research achievements that help foster economic prosperity and job growth, improve teaching and learning in our classrooms, and give families hope in coping with risky adolescent behaviors. These achievements result from just a few of the scores of worthy research projects undertaken at the University each year.
UAlbany has been deeply committed to service throughout its history and our research today exemplifies that tradition. One measure of the value of our efforts is the investment in research performed by UAlbany faculty: $114.6 million last year in support from government, foundations, individuals and industry.
We developed Research@UAlbany to provide a glimpse of the breadth of research here and to show how our talented faculty, staff and students, with the critical support of so many, address the complex needs of society today —and, indeed, truly make a difference.
