Stony Brook Breaks Ground on New Cancer Center


Government officials joined administrators from Stony Brook University Medical Center at a groundbreaking last week for a new Medical and Research Translation (MART) facility that will serve as the home of Stony Brook Medicine’s new Cancer Center. The 24,000 square-foot facility will enable the treatment of 150-percent more patients. The facility was funded, in part, through a $35 million NYSUNY 2020 Challenge grant and $50 million in support through a historic $150 million gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons to Stony Brook Medicine.Photo Courtesy of Stony Brook Medicine
