morgan dicarlo

At the “Topping Off” Ceremony for Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, cheers were heard as a crane installed the final beam needed to complete the frame of the major building project on the Stony Brook Medicine campus. The event marked a major milestone for the project and also served as a launching point for the Knapp Swezey Foundation Children’s Challenge, a $2.5 million matching challenge pledge designed to raise the $5 million needed to complete the $25 million Children’s Hospital Building fund philanthropic goal. The Knapp Swezey Foundation has pledged a dollar-for-dollar match on all private donations and public funding received between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016. Before the ceremony, the final beam was signed by patients, families, donors, elected representatives and Stony Brook Medicine leadership.

Evolutionary Feeding Advantages of “Warm Fish” Now Affected by Human Impacts

LED Safety

Scientists have commonly thought that fish which evolved to become endothermic, or warm-blooded, may allow them to be more active in colder waters and thus exploit more food sources. But a new study published in the   Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)  by Daniel Madigan, PhD, a Stony Brook University marine biologist, and colleagues nationally, reveals that this is not the case and that combined effects of overfishing and environmental changes can impact the performance of these fish.
