Stony Brook is an internationally recognized research university offering graduate degrees in the arts and sciences, engineering, business and the health professions. A member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, Stony Brook is one of the 65 top research institutions in North America, with more than $190 million in annual sponsored research and 2,000 active research projects. Campus research programs are complemented by strong ties to Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, which are both nearby. Stony Brook faculty are leaders in national and worldwide projects, and their work has led to such groundbreaking discoveries as the invention of the MRI technology that won the Nobel Prize for Medicine. 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. Stony Brook is also a destination for artistic and cultural enrichment. The Staller Center for the Arts offers entertainment programs throughout the year, and every summer the Stony Brook Film Festival brings filmmakers to campus. The Department of Athletics supports 18 Division I varsity intercollegiate athletic programs that compete at the highest level within the NCAA. Stony Brook’s 1,040-acre campus on Long Island is located 60 miles east of New York City.
