Celebrate our Researchers

In health care, research is the foundation for everything we do. SUNY Downstate faculty and staff contribute daily to knowledge that shapes our world.

Whether our researchers peer through a microscope or put a microscope on the practice of healthcare itself, our work changes the world.

Research at SUNY Downstate has yielded decades of innovation. Ongoing work in the basic sciences, translational research and clinical trials continue that legacy. And we continue to make advances, in public health studies, health information technology and evidence-based research on nursing.

The result: Medicine and healthcare as equitable as it is advanced.
