Specialized facilities support the Center’s research program including:
Vector Biology Lab
Funded previously by a SUNY 2020 grant at Upstate, and currently in the engineering phase, the Upstate Vector Biology Lab (VBL) is a state-of-the-art facility for research and training related to insects and other arthropod vectors of diseases with human health significance. The VBL will occupy approximately 2500 square feet and will be fully equipped with divided areas for ACL1 through 3 / BSL1 & 2 work; temporary animal housing; human-insect biting challenge studies; and bench work.
Core Facilities at SUNY ESF
Additionally, SUNY-ESF owns 25,000 acres of regional campus lands and facilities offer unparalleled learning and research opportunities directly relevant to the environmental sciences.
