Stony Brook Lyme Disease Vaccine Shows Promise in Clinical Trials

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Aug 26, 2013

Clinical trials were recently conducted and proved promising for a Lyme Disease vaccine developed by science researchers at Stony Brook University. The vaccine proved to produce a large number of antibodies against all targeted species of Borrelia, which causes Lyme Disease in Europe and the United States. Baxter International S.A., who worked with Stony Brook University researchers to develop the vaccine, conducted the clinical trials.

Stony Brook University Receives $2.45M in State Research Funding

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Jun 11, 2013

Lab suppliers marketing university lab equipment and hoping to increase scientific product sales may want to take a closer look at Stony Brook University’s latest research funding grants. Stony Brook University was recently awarded $2.45 million from the New York state government to fund programs are that have been designated as having “high need.” The government will be awarding $12 million to 36 SUNY colleges over the next three years.

First 25 of 250 New Research Faculty Hires Announced by Stony Brook

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Thu, Nov 29, 2012

Last year when we reported on the extraordinary $150 Million gift by the Simons Foundation to Stony Brook University (read the blog), we noted that part of the gift was earmarked for new research faculty hires as part of the SUNY 2020 Plan. Indeed the goal is to hire as many as 250 new researchers into the SUNY System by the year 2020--100 at the Stony Brook campus. The first 25 of those positions will be in 5 "clusters," which were recently selected from a larger pool of program proposals in the first round of the University's interdisciplinary faculty cluster hiring initiative. Rather than approving individual faculty members, or even allotting funds to individual departments, SBU is looking at using this unprecedented opportunity to strengthen its interdisciplinary programs through this clustered hiring of faculty who will work within a department but also as part of a larger team.

Research Mice, Science Equipment Lost and Saved in Northeast Storm

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Nov 02, 2012

Though the general consensus seems to be that the Northeast weathered deadly storm Sandy relatively well thanks to warnings and emergency plans put into action, there were unexpected casualties beyond the loss of over 80 human lives. Massive flooding in the lower New York Metro Area was not on the radar to the extent that it actually transpired, and basements that were thought to be flood-safe turned out not to be. That was the case at New York University's Smilow Research Center, where animal labs underground were inundated and approximately 10,000 research mice and rats drowned and lab equipment was ruined. On the upper floors, precious biological samples and reagents were lost as freezers and refrigerators shut down. Other research institutions in the area fared better.

Groundbreaking University Biomedical Research Identifies Superior MRI Agent

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, Jul 03, 2012

The first construction of an image by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMRI) by Dr. Paul Lauterbur took place at the University at Stony Brook thirty years ago, and the Stony Brook Chemistry professor went on to win the 2003 Nobel Prize for his work. So it's fitting that another breakthrough in MRI technology is also taking place at the Long Island research university, this time by biomedical engineer Balaji Sitharaman, right, and his team, who have developed a potentially safer and more cost effective MRI contrast agent for improved disease diagnosis and detection. The agent is graphene-based rather than gadolinium-based, and the success of the advanced agent is documented in a recent PLoS ONE article.

Stony Brook Life Science Research Vaults into Big League with $150M Gift

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, Dec 20, 2011

The recent news out of New York regarding SUNY Stony Brook's future could not be better: a private donation to the Long Island university of $150 million will not only secure the future of its science programs but will allow Stony Brook to move up in order of magnitude into the ranks of top life science research institutions nationwide.  The gift was made by the Simons Foundation, with the agreement by New York State that it will institute a new tuition structure for wealthier students and commit to a $35 million capital construction plan.  The gift will go towards insuring research excellence in the School of Medicine, hiring top research faculty, and recruiting the best graduate students.
