Stony Brook Receives $14.2M from NIH for New Laboratory

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Thu, Sep 05, 2013

Researchers at Stony Brook University, led by Samuel Stanley, applied for NIH funding to build an animal biosafety level three laboratory and received $14.2 million this year. Stony Brook University is one of the leading research universities in the country. According to the Stony Brook website, the university employs over 1000 researchers working on 1600 active sponsored projects. Stony Brook aims to collaborate in research partnerships that bring about new knowledge in all fields of research and scholarly activity The NIH RePORTER has details on some of the project information for the new laboratory receiving NIH funding:

“The planned structure will be a 16,140 ft sq. strict BSL-3 controlled-access facility for research involving laboratory animals and studies with the Select Agents Francisella tularensis and Yersinia pestis (both CDC Category A); Mycobacterium tuberculosis; pathogens of unknown in vivo virulence; arthropods infected with human and veterinary pathogens; or any investigations using laboratory animals that may require stringent laboratory security. The imaging suite is designed to allow operation under A-BSL-3 or A-BSL-2 conditions, which will permit access to its equipment by all University investigators in the biological and medical sciences and to investigators at the adjacent institutions of Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The A-BSL-3 will be equipped with the following fixed equipment: Class II Biosafety Cabinets, a pass-thru cold room, fume hoods, cage and rack washers, ventilated animal housing equipment, and a pass-through autoclave. The A-BSL-3 facility will serve an initial group of investigators with solid funding in infectious disease research through the National Institutes of Health, and a secondary group of investigators, also funded by the NIH.”
