Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


The Center of Disease Modeling and Therapy Discovery at SUNY Buffalo
Funded by a $15 million NYSTAR grant, the Center of Disease Modeling and Therapy Discovery at SUNY Buffalo will perform leading research to identify opportunities for and develop new therapies to effectively prevent and treat disease.

The consortium that makes up the STAR Center includes Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, Kaleida Health, SUNY Albany, and IBM. This consortium will serve as the locus for Western New Yorkís high throughput operations in gene expression, protein scale-up and purification, combinatorial chemistry, structural biology and pharmacogenomics, and will work with other partners across the State to strengthen the biomedical industry in New York.

The Buffalo STAR Center researchers, which includes a Nobel laureate, will have six labs working together: photonics and BioMEMS, high throughput molecular target, high throughput gene expression, high throughput proteomics, molecular kinetics and disease modeling. The mission of this STAR Center will be to develop novel gene- and disease-specific drug therapies.
