Innovation Fund

Your gift to the ACPHS Innovation Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) will support these initiatives:


Research is a core component of the academic life at ACPHS, with the majority of faculty across each of the College’s schools and departments actively engaged in research. The College is proud to provide many opportunities for students to work side-by-side with faculty on their research projects.

The Collaboratory at 3 Lincoln Square in Albany, NY

Will provide individually designed service modules that include: point of care screening and assessments, patient education, referral and navigation services, and more. The Collaboratory will utilize licensed pharmacists, faculty from clinical pharmacy practice, public health, and clinical laboratory science, doctor of pharmacy students, public health undergraduate students and clinical laboratory science undergraduate and graduate students. Our education focus and research will target different disease states, e.g., asthma and diabetes, as well as different patient populations and different transitions of care. The screening, education and management functions are readily adjusted to the needs of the community.

Innovation Exchange Residency and Fellowship

This program is dedicated to fostering strong academic-corporate relationships through the sharing of ideas, talent, and innovation. The program is designed to give Pharm Ds specialized and in depth training and experience in a particular discipline within pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.

Every gift to the ACPHS Innovation Fund, no matter the size, makes an immediate impact on students.

As an employee of Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, did you know about the Employee Giving program? Like most colleges, ACPHS relies on its employees to help champion its cause, support its mission, and make an impact by giving back to the institution.

Did you know that high employee giving can positively impact grant and foundation funding opportunities? Currently only 29% of employees give back to ACPHS. We can do better. No gift is too small. Our goal is 100% participation. Employees are encouraged to give at a level which they are comfortable and to support what means the most to them.

Your gifts impact the lives of our biggest investments our students.
