Health Sciences Center (Biomedical Engineering, Pediatrics, Pharmacology, Physiology & Biophysics, Psychiatry)
West Campus (Psychology)


Program faculty on the Stony Brook University campus are located in a complex formed by the Life Sciences Building, Centers for Molecular Medicine (CMM) and the Health Sciences Center. Because of the pan-departmental and pan-institutional nature of the program, departmental members interact regularly with faculty and students from the departments of pediatrics, physiology, psychology, psychiatry, pharmacology, and others. The additional, ties with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories and Brookhaven National Laboratory provide for a rich academic environment of research and scholarship.


Molecular facilities provide for analysis of protein and DNA biochemistry, including microsequencing, peptide mapping, synthesis of oligonucleotides and peptides, cellular transfection, and production of transgenic animals. Wide-ranging facilities for cellular and integrative electrophysiology exist for studies on dissociated neurons, brain slice preparations, neurons in situ, and genetically engineered cells in culture. Imaging facilities permit anatomical reconstruction, fluorescence measurements, and the use of ion-sensitive indicators on both conventional and confocal microscopes. An image analysis core is linked to a newly developed scanning and transmission electron microscopy facility.
