The Research Council of The State University of New York held its inaugural meeting on December 19, 2012 at the SUNY Global Center in New York City.

SUNY’s Research Council is a “who’s who” of research expertise that brings new vision and perspective to SUNY’s research future. Visit the Research Foundation’s website to learn about all of the council members.

Chaired by SUNY’s Vice Chancellor for Research and Research Foundation President Dr. Timothy Killeen, the council launched into its charge to lend broad thinking to SUNY’s leadership as a 21st Century public comprehensive research-intensive university system.

Wednesday’s meeting spanned the universe of ideas and input relating to trans-disciplinary programs, collaborations, benchmarks, peer institutions, and many other topics.

James P. Collins, Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and Environment, Arizona State University presented on The Future of Biology and the Research University of the 21st Century.

Council members then broke into working groups on three key components of SUNY’s research future: human capital development, infrastructure and facilities, and science and engineering frontiers.
