As one of a dozen top-tier awardees in the 2015 round of New York’s Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program, the University of Rochester Medical Center’s clinical research programs is in line to receive $1.26 million over the next two years, state officials said Thursday.
The state program this year is handing out a total of $17.2 million to academic medical centers and teaching hospitals across the state. The program is intended to further biomedical research and public health research specific to awardees’ local communities.
