(WBNG Binghamton) Ten SUNY schools will soon split nearly $700,000 in state funding for research projects, and Binghamton University makes the list.

Each campus will receive up to $100,000 from the SUNY Research Collaboration Fund.

The money will help BU and its SUNY partners develop treatments that help combat stress. They will also receive funding for medical imaging and stroke prevention.

The fund supports research collaborations among state campuses as part of the SUNY system's strategic plan, The Power of SUNY.

Other projects getting money will help improve cancer detection and treatment, medical diagnostics and analyze the effects of climate change.

Other campuses include SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, Stony Brook University, University of Buffalo, Downstate Medical Center, SUNY Brockport, Upstate Medical University, University of Albany, SUNY ESF and SUNY Potsdam.
