Stony Brook Medicine, SBU’s academic
medical center and healthcare system,
seamlessly integrates education, cutting-

the next generation of healthcare providers.

Its clinically integrated network encompasses
fi ve health sciences schools and four

It includes the Medical and Research
Translation (MART) building, an eight-
story, state-of-the-art facility dedicated
to cancer care and research on today’s top
health issues, including infectious disease,
neurosciences and advanced medical
imaging. At the MART, home to the Stony
Brook University Cancer Center, physicians
and researchers work side by side to make
revolutionary breakthroughs and deliver
lifesaving treatments for patients. In addition
to its far-reaching scientifi c-medical
benefi ts, the MART helps to support
Long Island’s economy through hundreds
of specialized jobs.

SBU’s impact on the Long Island economy
impressively amounts to more than $7.2
billion in increased output, and the university
is the region’s largest single-site employer.

Its economic development programs
have produced more than 4,000 industry
collaboration projects and created more
than 20,000 jobs. It includes five incubators:
two New York State Centers of Excellence,
in energy and in IT; a high-tech incubator;
a food business incubator; and a virtual
incubator. SBU’s robust technology transfer
activity has yielded more than 80 products
and services, including lifesaving medications
and diagnostics such as ReoPro ® , a drug
used for cardio angioplasty, and the virtual
colonoscopy. Addressing the healthcare needs
of neighboring communities, SBU’s specialized
mobile units offer mammography screening,
on-site stroke intervention and preventive oral
healthcare. SBU faculty members have 2,500-
plus inventions and more than 800 U.S. patents
and are making history-changing scientific
discoveries and advances, such as uncovering

the technology for the MRI, which won the
Nobel Prize in Medicine. SBU’s distinguished
institutes — including the Turkana Basin
Institute in Kenya, the site of groundbreaking
fossil discoveries, and Madagascar’s Centre
ValBio, a biodiversity conservation research
facility — further humankind’s understanding
of its origins and offer solutions to some of
Earth’s most vexing issues.
