RNA Training Program


In collaboration with

Biological Sciences, Biomedical Science and Chemistry.

This novel training program, RNA in Health and Disease, provides a multi-disciplinary curriculum with a focus on RNA and its health-related benefits. We aim to develop our future science leaders by providing graduate students with a comprehensive access to faculty, techniques and collaborations within UAlbany and the RNA Institute.

UAlbany and The RNA Institute are uniquely positioned to provide a transformative educational experience for graduate students interested in RNA biology, biophysics and chemistry, RNA in disease and RNA-targeted therapeutics.

In this program, students will not only be able to develop a basic understanding of RNA science, but also be able to transform knowledge into therapeutic and technical applications.

In addition students will opt for practical experiences in business entrepreneurship and/or communication. We will thus ensure a broad graduate experience that prepares our students for a wide range of career options.
