Considering the guests this announcement must be beneficial to UAlbany, Albany Law, Albany Med and Albany Pharmacy.


The announcement has to be important enough for 4 presidents to take the time.


A new affiliation or college? Can't be just another joint program, right?

"The University at Albany is expanding academic programs and rebranding its oft-forgotten East Greenbush campus in hopes of raising its national profile as a hub for the health sciences and biotechnology research.


University officials will unveil the newly renamed Health Sciences Campus and detail their plans at a 10 a.m. news conference scheduled for Monday on the campus.


While the university foundation has operated the 95-acre site since 1996, many in the region and within the university itself are unaware of the so-called East Campus on the other side of the Hudson River. Located off the Columbia Turnpike in the Rensselaer County town of East Greenbush, the campus shares an entrance and driveway with major pharmaceutical and biotech players like Regeneron and AMRI.


"Being able to say to say that we are on a health sciences campus, even if it's just a simple change of the name, can go a long way not just in our work but for the region's recognition as a whole," said Phillip Albrecht, whose biotech research company Integrated Tissue Dynamics rents space on the site.


Biopharmaceutical and technology companies in the region have long noted that their peers in Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., among other places, have a major leg up on them in securing grants, venture funding and work solely because of their location."
