Breast Surgery Division Research

The Division is committed to fulfilling Stony Brook’s mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.

Stony Brook participates in several national clinical trials, and our participation allows us to use the latest in therapeutic advances for the care of our patients. No patient is ever required to participate in a clinical trial.

While clinical trials are not for everyone, the availability of these trials serves as a hallmark of our ability to offer leading-edge treatment. For many patients, this is the only opportunity available in Suffolk County to benefit from such studies.

The Division’s current research programs are focused on novel approaches to optimizing surgical outcomes, as well as other treatment strategies to improve patient care.

Recent funding in support of the Division’s research has been provided by the National Cancer Institute through its cooperative affiliation with the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology .

For more information about our current clinical trials, please email our department research coordinator Andreea Fodor, PhD, or call her at 631-444-8333.
