UAlbany researchers at the RNA Institute are fighting muscular dystrophy with a $2.5M NIH grant, studying gum disease with a $2.3M NIH grant and won an NSF award for COVID-19 research. The Cancer Research Center has been awarded a $1.7M grant from the National Cancer Institute to study the role of nutrition in breast cancer. And the School of Public Health's decades-long partnership with the New York State Department of Health fosters collaborative, much needed research that benefits local communities.
Diverse, Relevant & Publicly Engaged Research
From advancing weather forecasting to using AI to predict tumor growth, researchers at the University at Albany are tackling some of society’s biggest challenges.
The Division is committed to advancing research and scholarship, while training the next generation of scientists — including individuals from underrepresented groups, who make up over 40% of our student body. These efforts place UAlbany at 38th on U.S News & World Report's national social mobility rankings for 2022-23.
The University's total research and development expenditures, investment in graduate scholarships and the number of scientists working on cutting-edge research in state-of-the-art facilities ensures UAlbany’s place among the top-tier Carnegie Research-1 institutions. We are excited to further expand our research capabilities by reunifying UAlbany and CNSE.
