With the rapid pace of advancement in the biomedical sciences and biotechnology, universities and medical centers together must test and research the latest developments in these areas to capitalize on regional, national and international opportunities.

The alliance between Rochester Institute of Technology and Rochester General Health System–announced in 2008–will concentrate intellectual resources in a new way for both institutions.

About the Alliance

RIT and RGHS will collaborate on educational and research programs - a partnership that will include mutual access to each institution’s world-renowned expertise and facilities. Together, we employ nearly 11,000 and have annual budgets totaling about $1.4 billion. This combined scale will ensure our inclusion in the most important decision-making processes relating to our constituencies and to our interests regionally, nationally and internationally.
