Life Sciences Discovery through Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Scientific research is coalesced around core interests in RNA science and technology, neuroscience, microbiology, molecular evolution of disease and molecular and cell biology. Founded on the philosophy that scientific discovery is a multidisciplinary, collaborative and highly interactive enterprise, the Life Science Research Initiative is based on a dynamic approach to scientific discovery and education. Discovery occurs at the frontiers and intersections of science and Life Sciences faculty provide a critical focus for collaborative discovery across traditional departments as well as with other University at Albany and regional scientists. The Life Sciences Research Building (LSRB) houses these activities as well as the RNA Institute.
