Stony Brook Medicine among first clinical sites in U.S. for simultaneous PET/MRI
Stony Brook Medicine, where MRI technology was first developed, is among the first sites in the United States to offer simultaneous PET/MRI technology for clinical use. The new technology will benefit patients by providing exceptional image quality and diagnostic capabilities, and greater efficiency by having two significant imaging procedures performed at the same time with low-dose radiation.

US Scientists Celebrate Nobel Prize for Higgs Discovery
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences today awarded the Nobel Prize in physics to theorists Peter Higgs and Francois Englert to recognize their work developing the theory of what is now known as the Higgs field, which gives elementary particles mass. U.S. scientists played a significant role in advancing the theory and in discovering the particle that proves the existence of the Higgs field, the Higgs boson.

Does Success Breed Success? SBU Sociology Professor Arnout van de Rijt Awarded NSF Grant for Big Data Research to Get to the Bottom of An Age-Old Assumption
Arnout van de Rijt, an associate professor in Stony Brook University’s Department of Sociology and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS), has been awarded a $275,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his project, “Field Experiments and Formal Models of Arbitrary Social Inequality.” His research focuses on success-breeds-success dynamics and suggests that many successes that individuals experience are a direct result of prior success, and not intrinsic quality or merit.

Stony Brook Heart Institute Evaluates First Dissolvable Stent
Specialists at Stony Brook University Heart Institute have launched a clinical trial investigating the first cardiovascular stent that opens a heart vessel the same way as metallic stents but then dissolves away naturally. The new stent could prove to have benefits over standard metallic drug-eluting stents in relation to vessel blood flow and how much natural motion returns to the vessel after it dissolves. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States.

Toxic ‘Rust Tide’ Emerges Within Eastern Long Island Bays
A ‘rust tide’ has emerged across several eastern Long Island estuaries including the Peconic and Shinnecock Bay. Monitoring by The Gobler Laboratory of Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences has recorded the rust tide algae at densities exceeding 10,000 cells per milliliter in the western extreme of the Peconic Estuary. Densities exceeding 1,000 cells per milliliter were present in Shinnecock Bay as well as Flanders Bay and its tributaries such as Meetinghouse Creek. Densities above 500 cells per milliliter can be lethal to marine life.
