The University offers more than 200 undergraduate programs, nearly 100 master’s programs and more than 50 doctoral programs to nearly 27,000 high-achieving students from nearly all 50 states and more than 100 countries. The C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, founded by Nobel Prize-winning physicist and Stony Brook Professor Emeritus C.N. Yang, is a leading center for high-energy physics, string theory and statistical mechanics. The Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology seeks to advance biology and medicine through discoveries in physics, mathematics and computational science. Researchers from around the world also gather at the University’s Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, where they explore synergies between theoretical physics and mathematics to deepen an understanding of the physical universe. The Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology and three state-designated Centers for Advanced Technology — in diagnostic tools and sensor systems, biotechnology and integrated electric energy systems — facilitate partnerships between New York State industry and University research. The Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center brings together academic and research institutions, energy providers and industry to focus on innovative energy solutions. The entrepreneurial energy and economic strength of the University bring a combined benefit of more than $7.2 billion to the region’s economy. Stony Brook Medicine, the region’s premier academic medical center, encompasses Stony Brook University Hospital, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, a variety of community-based healthcare settings, and five health sciences schools. It is also home to the Stony Brook Cancer Center, Heart Institute, Neurosciences Institute and the Long Island State Veterans Home.
