Fund will support research and PhD students within the Department of Pharmacological Sciences

Arthur p grollmanThe family of Arthur Grollman, MD, has established an endowed pharmacology fund at Stony Brook University to honor the late distinguished professor. In addition, the Arthur P. Grollman Seminar Room was named for him in the Basic Science Tower within the Department of Pharmacological Sciences.

Dr. Grollman joined the Stony Brook faculty in 1974 and was named the first chair of the Department of Pharmacological Sciences at the newly founded School of Medicine, which opened its doors in August 1971. In the 1990s, he served as associate dean for scientific affairs, and in 2003, he was named distinguished professor of pharmacological sciences. He also served as the Evelyn G. Glick Professor of Experimental Medicine and director of the Zickler Laboratory of Chemical Biology. Those who worked closely with Dr. Grollman said that the Department of Pharmacological Sciences flourished under his leadership and ranked fifth in the country.

His wife, Annette Oestreicher Grollman, and three children established the Arthur Grollman Endowed Fund in Pharmacology. “We want Arthur’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of scientists and physicians to continue through this fund at Stony Brook University,” said Oestreicher Grollman.

With the State Endowment Match Challenge and the Simons Infinity Investment Challenge, their gift will have triple the impact on the department and university. Support for pharmacology PhD candidates could contribute to training expenses, travel to lectures and seminars, and research equipment.

Dr. Grollman’s legacy at Stony Brook will live on to inspire future generations of scientists.
