Stony Brook University’s state-of-the-art, 70,000-square-foot Computer Science Building is open for business as University administrators, elected officials, faculty, staff and students gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday afternoon. The celebratory event featured remarks from Stony Brook leadership and community leaders, tours of the facility and its five research centers and live lab demonstrations that included virtual colonoscopy screenings, immersive head mounted displays which allowed attendees to tour the building virtually in 360 degrees, and cyber security demonstration projects in the building’s National Security Institute.

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.
