Schumer sponsoring breast cancer research centers
ALBANY -- Sen. Charles Schumer announced his sponsorship of legislation to funnel federal funds to top breast cancer research centers including UAlbany.
The RNA Institute at the University at Albany works closely with the Cancer Research Center at the University's School of Public Health. Senator Schumer believes it has the potential to create major breakthroughs. That's why he says he's sponsoring a commission whose goal would be to seek major advancements over the next decade and see that funding goes to help promote that growth.
Senator Schumer also said that over the course of three years UAlbany took a $5 million grand and found an additional $10 million in public and private funding.
