UAlbany's RNA Institute Applying New Tools Toward Enhanced Drug Discovery and Design
The RNA Institute and Dell are making state-of-the-art computational equipment available to model RNA for drug discovery and design. The high-end computer equipment affords researchers greater speed and precision to challenge afflictions like breast and colon cancer, neuromuscular disease, drug resistant infections, and tuberculosis.
Minerva: UAlbany’s Enduring Symbol
The statue of Minerva currently on display in the University's Science Library dates back to 1888. It has survived numerous moves as the University expanded from a small teachers college to a university center, most notably a devastating fire in 1906.
Business incubator managers now have available a new resource, a Web-based toolkit, designed to help them best support their client start-up companies on the road to success. David Lewis, of UAlbany's Department of Geography and Planning, is co-developer of the toolkit and lead author of the associated study, Incubating Success.
