Each year at SUNY Downstate we train approximately 1,500 young men and women to become compassionate and highly competent physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and biomedical researchers. By contributing to Downstate you will have a direct impact on the training of healthcare professionals. In addition, starting in 2002 SUNY Downstate extended its commitment to the education and welfare of the community through its new Masters in Public Health program.


Biomedical research is a growth industry at SUNY Downstate. Building on milestones in magnetic imaging, dialysis, microsurgery, pharmacology and HIV research, we continue to pave the way for new discoveries. The new 50,000 sq.ft. Advanced Biotechnology Incubator will provide an unprecedented opportunity to combine our existing research expertise with that of both start-up and mature biotechnology firms.
