A newly created alliance to foster biomedical research among the Capital Region’s leading academic research institutions today announced its first grants: 10 awards totaling $745,000.

The presidents of the institutions presented the awards, funded through the NY Cap Research Alliance, which was established with $950,000 in state funds as part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Council initiative.  Information on the Alliance can be found at www.nycapresearchalliance.org.

Presidents James J. Barba of Albany Medical Center, Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and George M. Philip of the University at Albany formed the Research Alliance.  The Alliance is a first-round Capital Region Economic Development Council (CREDC) priority project.  Each research project selected by the Alliance involves collaboration among scientists from at least two of the three institutions to advance biomedical research with potential for commercialization.
