10 SUNY campuses to split $700K in research funds

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Seven research projects involving 10 State University of New York campuses will split nearly $700,000 in state funding.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office announced Wednesday that each project will receive up to $100,000 from the SUNY Research Collaboration Fund. The fund supports research collaborations among state campuses as part of the SUNY system's strategic plan.

The projects being funded include cancer detection and treatment research being conducted at four upstate and downstate campuses and climate change analysis being done at the University at Albany and the College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse.

Other SUNY campuses receiving the funding: College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany, Stony Brook University, the University at Buffalo, Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, Brockport, Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, Binghamton and Potsdam.

    Realty TV star Kim Kardashian probably wished she did have one before she walked down the aisle with Kris Humphries. We might never have known about Tiger Woods' cheating ways if he had one. And figure skater Johnny Weir is insisting on one as part of his post-nuptial agreement. What is it? A digital privacy clause.
