stanleyEbola: Risks of Emerging Infections
Dr. Stanley is a distinguished biomedical researcher and a prominent name among experts on infectious diseases. 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. He 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.

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein
Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalists, Authors and Political Analysts

berstein and woodwardLooking at the Presidency: From Nixon to Obama
Few journalists in American history have had the impact on their era and their craft that Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein have. In the 1970s they set the standard for modern investigative reporting with a series of articles for The Washington Post that unraveled the Watergate scandal and led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Four decades later, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and co-authors of All the President’s Men and The Final Days are still leading the charge for informative, unbiased journalism. Woodward, associate editor for The Washington Post, and Bernstein, Visiting Presidential Professor at Stony Brook University, are both frequent contributors on MSNBC, CNN and all other major networks.

All the President's Men is a 1976 American political thriller film directed by Alan J. Pakula. The screenplay by William Goldman is based on the 1974 non-fiction book of the same name by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, the two journalists investigating the Watergate scandal for The Washington Post. The film starred Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as Woodward and Bernstein, respectively. The film was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Picture. Gene Roberts, former executive editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer and former managing editor of The New York Times, has called the work of Woodward and Bernstein "maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time."
