SUNY Health

Humans are living longer then ever, thanks in large part to modern medicine. But today’s life-saving medical practices are not without their problems. For example, overuse of antibiotics is leading to antibiotic resistance among many dangerous bacteria; the majority of people waiting for organ transplants still never get them; and the diagnosis of neurological disorders, such as strokes, can take days of invasive and expensive tests.

In 2014, the SUNY Health network invested $900,000 in multidisciplinary research projects to investigate novel antibiotics, examine issues related to aging, create handheld biosensors, and design personalized tissue transplants using 3D-printing technology, among other projects. These interdisciplinary projects, which comprise researchers and students from across SUNY’s campuses, aim to take standard medical practice to a whole new level—one in which treatments are targeted, individualized, affordable, and most importantly successful.
