RNA Training Program

In collaboration with

Biological Sciences, Biomedical Science and Chemistry.

This novel training program, RNA in Health and Disease, supported by an NIH training grant, 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, SUNY Polytechnic Institute 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, nanobiosciences, RNA in disease.

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 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.





The goal of our T32 program in RNA Science and Technology is to rigorously train science and engineering graduate students in the principles of RNA, with applications in human health and disease. The RNA Fellows program spans four departments at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry and Nanobiosciences, and will support a comprehensive, intellectually rigorous, and individualized graduate training experience with tracks that focus on entrepreneurial or science communication.
