continued The state will invest up to $35 million over five years to support research and development efforts between Clarkson and Trudeau, including establishing and coordinating scientific research and expanding education and technology-based economic development. These activities include research into the use of fine particles for medicine, pharmacy, biotech, nanotech and bioengineering programs at Clarkson and extend to additional areas such as instrumentation and devices, and other biomedical engineering initiatives in the North Country that would not be possible by either institution acting on its own.
“Together, Trudeau and Clarkson have an opportunity to transform the body of scientific knowledge that will emerge through collaboration as well as bring direct benefit to the North Country’s economy through technology-based innovation and new educational opportunities,” Clarkson University President Tony Collins said.
“This infusion of funding over the next five years provides the momentum we need for stabilizing Trudeau and fast-tracks full implementation of a new business plan for the Trudeau Institute including translational research and new applications for our discoveries,” Ronald H. Goldfarb, President, Director & CEO of the Trudeau Institute, said. “Enhancing our relationship with Clarkson University will synergize initiatives between our respective, talented faculties.”
