Research at SUNY-ESF

Research at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry is remarkably diverse, current and challenging. Contributions are being made in fields that include aquatic ecosystems, bioenergy, biotechnology, biodiversity, ecology, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, remote sensing, wildlife disease prevention and many others. ESF is a leader in integrating the energy and excitement of research with the formal requirements of degree and certificate programs. A high percentage of undergraduates and virtually all graduate students participate in research activity as part of their educational experience.

The Office of Research Programs (ORP)

The Office of Research Programs (ORP) seeks to stimulate, facilitate and highlight research at ESF. The Vice Provost for Research (Neil H. Ringler) and ORP staff at all levels (William J. Nicholson, Donald E. Artz, Susan E. Benoit, Lisa Schwabenbauer, Donna B. Follett, Mary Anne Stanton, Theresa Kaier-May, Cheryl A. Liptak, Anne R. Knapp and Jessica L. Clemons), strive to make research opportunities at the College as broad and achievable as possible. We are the central resource for the initiation, funding and management of all ESF research activity. Our specific roles and responsibilities are listed here.

Please see the 2012-2013 ORP Annual Report (Blue Book), for the specifics about our 15.1 M expenditure on externally funded research endeavors, providing not only new results, but also unique educational and experiential opportunities. Research projects engage students of all levels, postdoctoral associates, ESF faculty and external collaborators. These projects extend from sub-molecular to global levels, and many include important innovations and new processes: more than 35 active patents have been issued to ESF faculty and their students since 1983. See here for our new Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS) of ESF projects.

Our work is often carried out in distant places, such as Antarctica, New Zealand, Russia and South America, and most projects have application far beyond the borders of New York or the United States. Mentoring programs are expanding to enhance the opportunities of new and experienced faculty, staff and students, both in research practice and in identification of the financial underpinnings of research programs. The coming decade is a particularly important time in the College's research experience, as new programs and facilities in biotechnology, natural and environmental sciences are being planned and/or completed.
