With expanded state-of-the-art space for patients and families, our new facility offers access to Stony Brook’s cancer experts in one convenient location, with space that respects the special needs of patients with cancer and their families. The MART will increase the number of infusion sessions available in a more spacious, comfortable environment for children and adults.


The MART is made possible by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the State University of New York and Empire State Development through a $35 million NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant, $50 million in support through a historic $150 million gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons, and $53 million in support from New York State Senators John Flanagan and Kenneth LaValle.

Additionally, two back-to-back gifts from Kavita and Lalit Bahl, totaling $13.75 million, established the Kavita and Lalit Bahl Center for Metabolomics and Imaging on Level 9 of the MART and the Kavita and Lalit Bahl Molecular Imaging Laboratory on Level 4.
