RNA Institute members and the fight against corona virus

These research projects, which utilize labs outside the main SUNY campus for any active virus research, are designed to understand the virus, improve current testing approaches and explore potential new therapeutics.

Some members of the RNA Institute (our Wadsworth colleagues) are part of the Department of Health’s team that is providing the essential coronavirus testing for New Yorkers. The Institute leadership has been in communication with these colleagues and have offered support through the use of scientific equipment and reagents for the testing efforts. We have been in contact with our colleagues at Regeneron and are excited to hear that past and current trainees from the Institute are part of the team effort to develop novel tools for combating this virus.
