University at Albany 

East Campus
Rensselaer, New York

The University at Albany's East Campus is home to a joint venture between the Cancer Research Center (CRC) and School of Public Health. Current tenants include bioscience, chemical and nanotech firms. These facilities are located at the East Campus because of the support and access to high-end instrumentation that the CFG offers them.

The CRC works with companies and researchers from academia and government around the world. All Ivy League schools have outsourced work to the Cancer Research Center, as have major research institutions such as Scripps and the National Institutes of Health. In addition, the centers do work for large pharma and biotech companies, several of which have come to Rensselaer County to be close to the facility.

Researchers at the East Campus are currently working on a number of commissioned projects, including genetic engineering of an exotic fruit to remove its prickers, various cancer research projects, and a $2.2 million grant awarded to a faculty member studying a new layer of cellular signaling managed by the cell's RNA. About 20 percent of the work done at the centers is global; 50 percent is local and the other 30 percent comes from throughout the rest of the United States.

The Capital Region has the fourth largest concentration of employment in research, testing, and medical laboratories of all metropolitan areas in the U.S., largely due to the high concentration of higher education facilities and the fact that the New York Department of Health's Wadsworth Lab is the third largest bioresearch organization in the country.
