Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, is a distinguished biomedical researcher and chair of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity. He was one of the nation’s highest recipients of support from the National Institutes of Health for his research focusing on enhanced defense against emerging infectious diseases.
Dr. Stanley is an expert in the biological mechanisms that cells employ when responding to infectious agents such as parasites, bacteria and viruses — a process commonly called the inflammatory response. He has published several scholarly articles about the characterization of key proteins and pathways involved in amebic, bacterial and viral infections, blood-borne pathogen risks in hemophilia therapy, and the identification of new strain-specific clones. Better defense against infection is a key focus of his research.
President Stanley’s talk, “Ebola: Risks of Emerging Infections,” will be held on Wednesday, September 3, at 1:15 pm in the Staller Center, Main Stage. The event is free and open to the public. Questions are encouraged; please submit them prior to the lecture by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
