Interdisciplinary Research Centers
At Albany Med, basic research scientists are organized into four interdisciplinary centers facilitating discoveries that translate into medical innovations at patients' bedsides. These centers are conducting research in many exciting areas including infectious disease, addiction, cancer, pain, and stem cells therapy.
"Advancing the Quest for Cures"
Research at Albany Med is flourishing more than ever before. We invite you to learn more about the exciting biomedical research efforts under way at Albany Medical College by exploring the brochure "Advancing the Quest for Cures" (published in 2010).
|The Center for Cell Biology and Cancer Research (CCBR) offers graduate and postdoctoral training programs based on a comprehensive approach to the study of the Cell Biology of Cancer. The Center's faculty is comprised of an interdisciplinary group of scientists with expertise in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology. VIEW PAGE|
|Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in America today. By conducting research and providing training to young scientists the Center for Cardiovascular Sciences serves as a resource to the greater Capital District to combat cardiovascular disease. VIEW PAGE|
|The Center for Immunology & Microbial Disease has an emphasis on infectious disease pathogenesis and protection. The emergence of new pathogens, the increasing development of drug resistance and the threat of bioterrorism have combined to create an increased demand for investigations into the mechanisms of disease and the body's ability to combat these diseases.
