of a new Medical and Research Translation (MART) building and University Hospital Bed Tower This
expansion is made possible by New York State Governor Andrew M Cuomo and the State University
of New York under the leadership of Chancellor Nancy L Zimpher, through a $35 million NYSUNY
2020 Challenge Grant, $50 million in support through an historic $150 million gift from Jim and Marilyn
Simons, and over $50 million in support from New York State Senators Kenneth LaValle (R-Port Jeffer-
son) and John Flanagan (R-Northport)
With 245,000 square feet, the eight-story MART will be located on Stony Brook University’s Medicine
campus, adjacent to the Hospital and Health Sciences Towers MART will be a home for understanding the basis for human disease, where
scientific discovery will be translated into clinical research, and where promising patient results can be turned into FDA-approved healthcare
diagnostic and treatment options As part of its core mission, the MART will be devoted to cancer research and care, including the new home for
the Stony Brook Cancer Center The MART will also house advanced biomedical imaging and biomedical informatics, including one of the very
first simultaneous PET/MRI scanners in the country With 225,000 square feet, the 10-story Bed Tower will contain 150 inpatient beds, with
two floors dedicated to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital The tower will also include a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, adolescent unit, procedure
suite, hematology/oncology unit, medical/surgical units, an expanded imaging department, and state-of-the-art adult critical care and cardiac
