PRESIDENT STANLEY TALKS ABOUT EBOLA AND ITS RISKS

President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, will give a special lecture: “Ebola: Risks of Emerging Infections,” on Wednesday, September 3, at 1:15 pm, Staller Center for the Arts Main Stage.

Dr. Stanley is a distinguished biomedical researcher and chair of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity. He was one of the nation’s highest recipients of support from the National Institutes of Health for his research focusing on enhanced defense against emerging infectious diseases.

He is an expert in the biological mechanisms that cells employ when responding to infectious agents such as parasites, bacteria and viruses — a process commonly called the inflammatory response. Dr. Stanley has published several scholarly articles about the characterization of key proteins and pathways involved in amebic, bacterial and viral infections, blood-borne pathogen risks in hemophilia therapy, and the identification of new strain-specific clones. Better defense against infection is a key focus of his research.

The event is free and open to the public. Questions are encouraged; please submit them prior to the lecture by email toconferences.events@stonybrook.edu.

For more information or for a disability-related accommodation, please call (631) 632-6320.
