This innovative, one semester, evening program is taught by industry professionals
through lectures and interactive team projects. Students gain first-hand experience
in the development of commercialization strategies around real intellectual property
and business issues. This experiential learning process will shed light onto the expanded
number of business roles to which scientific skills can be applied.
Benefits of the program include:
Learning the process of how a technology becomes a product
Increasing your marketability through education beyond the typical classroom
Gaining insight into corporate decision making
Making connections with industry leaders
Access to alumni network with ongoing career opportunities, mentoring and social interactions
Created by the
Center for Biotechnology, this program is targeted towards graduate students and postdocs seeking to facilitate
commercial activities within their academic labs or enhance their knowledge of the
commercial sector in order to transition into non-academic careers.
Stony Brook's Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) program is seeking research
project leaders for its WSE 187: Introduction to Research course this Spring.
Projects are designed and implemented by graduate students, postdocs and faculty
working with small groups of 2 to 10 WISE first year students. The goal is to provide
a range of hands-on research experiences in diverse areas including Engineering, Mathematics,
Life Sciences, Physics and Social Sciences. Students take a series of 3 rotations,
where one rotation consists of 8 meetings lasting 1hr 20min.
The total commitment for project leaders is about 11 hours per session. The session
can be a piece of the ongoing research in your laboratory, or an activity that demonstrates
the essence of your field.
Graduate students, postdocs and professionals are encouraged to apply to be a Scientist-in-Residence
in the 2016-2017 school year. The Scientist-in-Residence Program is an exciting initiative
co-sponsored by the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and New York Academy
of Sciences (NYAS) that matches scientists and STEM professionals from the local community
as “Scientists-in-Residence” who work with New York City public school teachers and
their students to plan and carry out original long-term investigations.
