Opportunities to experience what scientists do were few and far between for Shruti Sharma while growing up in India. This lack of early exposure to hands-on science activities contributed to Sharma—now a fifth-year PhD candidate graduating this summer from the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University and a guest researcher at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory—becoming involved in educational outreach. Since her undergraduate years, she has been mentoring K–12 and undergraduate students through various science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs. “When I was younger,…

Kristina Gonzalez witnessed first-hand the birth of a newborn boy this spring when the high school senior shadowed Brian Hunt, MD, an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology at Stony Brook Medicine. “When I was with him, his patient went into labor and I got to see the baby being born,” said Kristina, who graduated this month from Longwood High School on Long Island. “It was an intense experience. I’d never seen anything like that in real life before and it opened my eyes to the possibility that I could have a career path in labor and delivery.” Her…

The physicist who struggles to navigate the politics of her lab because her competence is perceived as making her less “likable.” The medical researcher who misses out on career guidance as would-be mentors gravitate toward her male colleagues. The high school student who never even embarks on her science career, because she’s been conditioned to believe she can’t be successful. These are just a few examples of the stereotyping and gender bias that hold women back in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (collectively referred to as “STEM”). Now, through a powerful gift from two of the nation’s…

Striking rock ‘n’ roll photography by the late SBU chemistry professor Dick Solo is on display through July 2 at the Village Center in Port Jefferson, LI. Solo, who was among SBU’s original faculty when the University opened at its current location in 1962, doubled as a serious chronicler of area events featuring big-name musical acts who performed on campus in the early 1980s.
