Strategic Partnership with the Center for Biotechnology

The Department of Biomedical Engineering serves as the home for the Center for Biotechnology, one of New York’s fifteen Centers for Advanced Technology.

The Center for Biotechnology’s mission is to catalyze the translation of basic biomedical sciences into diagnostic and therapeutic technologies that benefit human health and society and fuel economic growth.

Center-driven initiatives have included the establishment of the Long Island High Technology Incubator (LIHTI) program, founding of the New York Biotechnology Association (NYBA) and the Long Island Life Sciences Initiative (LILSI) and the creation of an Innovative Technology Development (ITD) Program focused on the discovery and development of academic-based technologies toward commercial goals. Annual economic impact related to these activities approached $1.2B from 1998 - 2013.

Affiliated Labs

Brookhaven National Laboratory

The US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory creates and operates major facilities available to university, industrial and government personnel for basic and applied research in physical, biomedical and environmental sciences and in selected energy technologies.

Communications, Signal Processing, Speech and Vision Laboratory

The CSPV Laboratory supports the research efforts of five faculty members and about 15 graduate students of the Department of Electrical Engineering whose work is in the areas of communications and signal processing. Ongoing research projects involve mobile and wireless networks, teletraffic performance modeling, image processing, computer communications, digital speech processing, data transmission using coded modulation, multiple-access systems, dynamic channel assignment, network performance evaluation, signal detection, information theory, Bayesian parameter estimation and computer vision. The laboratory is located in Rooms 202 and 204 in the Light Engineering Building at Stony Brook University.

Medical Imaging Laboratory

The Medical Imaging Laboratories (MIL) are home to two research groups conducting investigations in sensor instrumentation, data acquisition strategies, image formation, processing and analysis. The labs are part of the Department of Radiology and are also affiliated with the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as the USB Department of Biomedical Engineering. The faculty and staff members are jointly appointed in Radiology and in the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The graduate student body is from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Two research groups in the labs have their own particular emphases. The labs are home to the Laboratory for Imaging Research and Informatics (IRIS) and the Medical Image Processing Laboratory (MIPL). The IRIS emphasizes the optimization of data acquisition, strategies of image formation and information communication. Medical Image Processing Laboratory (MIPL): The MIPL has its main expertise in theoretical methods of image reconstruction and image analysis.

Polymer Structure Laboratory

The Garcia Center for Polymers at Engineered Interfaces is a collaboration of academic, industrial and government laboratories. The Garcia Center is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of its Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program. The goal of the MRSEC is to combine the instrumentation and expertise of the participating institutions into a coordinated research program on polymers interface science. The principal focus areas include thin films, coatings, nanostructured materials and composites. These areas address both the fundamental and applied aspects that are relevant to the development of cutting edge enabling technologies for a diverse group of U.S. industries. In the community, the mission of the center is to serve as a valuable resource providing easy access for technological assistance to educational and industrial institutions.

Visualization Laboratory

The Visualization Laboratory of the Department of Computer Science at the State University of New York at Stony Brook was founded and is headed by Leading Professor and Chairman, Dr. Arie E. Kaufman. Most of the research conducted here involves the development of volume rendering techniques used in scientific visualization and virtual reality applications. Currently, the laboratory has projects in: architectures for volume rendering, parallel methods for volume rendering (regular and irregular grids), development of tools for visualization, flow visualization.
