Welcome to the latest edition of Medicine Today.
This is a momentous time in the history of Stony Brook Medicine. With the opening of the Kavita and Lalit Bahl Center for Metabolomics and Imaging, we are exploring one of the great frontiers in cancer research: metabolomics and lipidomics.
Thanks to two generous gifts totaling $13.75 million from Kavita and Lalit Bahl, this new center capitalizes on Stony Brook University’s unique combination of expertise in three areas: cancer research and treatment, imaging and metabolomics. In the process, our research will transform the nature of personalized, precision-based cancer care.
We are also celebrating the opening of the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Comprehensive Care Center. Unique to the tri-state area, this center will serve nearly one thousand boys who have been diagnosed with DMD across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Stony Brook Children’s Hospital will play a prominent role in providing clinical care and helping to identify clinical trials for these patients, as we continue to fight this dreaded disease.
Also in this edition, we recognize David Fell ’18, who received the inaugural Class of 1983 Endowed Scholarship Honoring Dr. Aldustus Jordan and Dr. Jack Stern.
These new programs will help bring Stony Brook’s best ideas in medicine to life for our patients — across Long Island, New York State and beyond.
