Academic medical centers create vibrant intellectual atmospheres, where the best minds in medicine converge.
Through the melding of minds and the constant exchange of ideas, we ultimately create better outcomes for our patients.
That principle is always in abundant evidence at Stony Brook Medicine. And this issue of Medicine Today reflects a broad range of recent scientific and medical achievements. From the ApolloTM System for treating hemorrhagic stroke, to our new pathology physicians who are advancing cancer research, to the opening of our new Biobank, which provides researchers with powerful investigative tools to improve diagnoses and treatments, activities abound that will ultimately improve medical care — not just at Stony Brook but around the globe.
We also highlight efforts to improve medicine globally through our participation in the “A Promise To Peru” mission, and we feature one of our own physicians, Henry Woo, MD, an internationally renowned neurosurgeon, who is developing new ways to image and treat patients with acute stroke and/or brain aneurysms.
This is just a small sampling of what goes on every day at Stony Brook Medicine. It would be impossible to tell the stories of every physician, every researcher, every caregiver. But in these halls and classrooms, in our research labs and patient rooms, we are continually bringing the best ideas in medicine to life.
