One of the new sciences at the University at Albany is the School of Public Health, founded in 1985 as a cooperative venture of the University and the faculty of the Wadsworth Center of the New York State Department of Public Health. The School of Public Health moved into its new facilities at the former Sterling Winthrop chemical research facility on the East Campus in East Greenbush in 1997. Other buildings are used as incubator space for biotech businesses.

The University at Albany's newly completed Gen*NY*Sis Center for Excellence in Cancer Genomics is located on the East Campus of the University (above) in East Greenbush, NY. The long term goal of the center is to be a comprehensive cancer research and treatment center. Dr. Paulette McCormick began her work in the Department of Biology, but is now the director of the Gen*NY*Sis Center for Excellence in Cancer Genomics.
