Abstract:
Lieutenant Governor Robert J. Duffy today joined officials in announcing a $3 million partnership between Carestream Health and the Research Foundation of SUNY on behalf of the Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany, a collaboration that will enable innovative technology research, development and prototyping, create high-tech jobs, and fill the last available space at CNSE's STC facilities in Canandaigua.

Carestream Health and CNSE's STC Launch $3M Partnership for Innovative Research and Prototyping: Collaboration will create high-tech jobs and fill last available space at CNSEs STC in Canandaigua

Canandaigua, NY | Posted on April 13th, 2011

The announcement was made during the annual meeting of the Rochester Regional Photonics Cluster (RRPC), held at CNSE's STC and attended by more than 150 executives, entrepreneurs and investors representing over 80 optics, photonics and imaging companies in the Greater Rochester region.

Through the partnership, Carestream Health will conduct research and prototype development for some of its newest digital technologies at CNSE's STC. The company will invest in new equipment and upgrades to the facility, and will lease more than 6,000 square feet of space, including 1,200 square feet of cleanroom space. The project will enable joint development programs with CNSE's STC on a number of advanced technologies, and is expected to result in the creation of approximately 24 high-tech jobs by CNSE's STC over the next three years.

A global leader in medical and dental imaging systems, as well as healthcare IT solutions, Carestream Health has multiple offerings in radiography, mammography, dental and molecular imaging. The company has more than 7,400 employees in 150 countries around the world, including 1,200 employees in the Rochester area, with annual sales of $2.5 billion.

"We are very fortunate to have CNSE's STC, with advanced capabilities and facilities, right in our own backyard," said James E. Burns, Director, Advanced Development and Strategy, Carestream Health. "The availability of state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities in close proximity to outstanding technical resources led us to expand our presence in the STC here in Canandaigua. We look forward to working together as we develop tomorrow's digital imaging technology."

CNSE Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros said, "The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to welcome Carestream Health as the newest corporate partner on site at CNSE's Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center of Excellence. This partnership will create high-tech jobs and drive new private investment in the Greater Rochester region while demonstrating the growing ability of nanotechnology to improve health care through innovative diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, and showcasing the advanced capabilities of CNSE's STC to enable smart system technologies for the most critical and fastest-growing industries of the 21st century."

CNSE Vice President for Disruptive Technologies and Executive Director of CNSE's STC Paul Tolley said, "The location of Carestream Health at CNSE's Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center of Excellence underscores our ability to support and enable rapid growth and emerging opportunities in the expanding marketplace for smart system technologies. This partnership will exploit the power of nanotechnology-enabled systems and devices to drive critical technologies while fueling economic growth that will benefit the region and state."

CNSE's STC has been integrated into CNSE in a partnership of two of New York's Centers of Excellence, the result of a merger in September 2010. CNSE's STC provides certified cleanroom space for fabrication and packaging of MEMS devices, and leverages CNSE's $7 billion Albany NanoTech Complex, which features 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms equipped with leading-edge tools and state-of-the-art capabilities to accelerate 21st century nanotechnology innovations.
