Construction on the Upstate Cancer Research Center at University Hospital in Syracuse is rapidly taking shape.
The center will have a variety of medical services in a centralized location. Many services are already being offered, like a specialized psychologist, who works to help the emotional and psychological needs that cancer patients and families deal with, and an integrated medicine specialist, who advises patients on non-traditional therapies they may wish to add to their traditional treatment methods.
Some of the construction and development Upstate Medical University is doing in Syracuse could fit perfectly with the Governor's Start-Up New York Initiative. Research projects already underway could pave the way to future growth.
