    In Search of the Origins of the Universe | Professor Abhay Deshpande

    In Search of the Origins of the Universe | Professor Abhay Deshpande

    In this episode of Beyond the Expected, Michael Bernstein is talking with Stony Brook University Physics Professor, Abhay Deshpande, who, in addition to his role as the Director of the Center for Frontiers in Nuclear Science at Stony Brook University, has a joint appointment at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where he is Director of EIC Science. Professor Deshpande works in experimental nuclear physics, and his current research includes various exploratory and precision studies in QCD using polarized proton-proton, proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus beams of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island. He also does research with high intensity polarized electron beams of the recently upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at the Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia. He was one of the original proposers of and has been involved deeply in the development of the science and promotion of the Electron Ion Collider, a $1.6 billion-dollar Department of Energy development project -- the first of its kind in the world -- that was awarded in January 2020 to Brookhaven National Lab. He’s been focused on this area of science for more than 20 years, and now, with the certainty that this new facility will come to fruition, he will actually see his dream come to fruition. We can be assured that scientists around the world will have an opportunity to explore new frontiers that have never been explored before using the BNL’s Electron Ion Collider.

    To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate | Dr. Sharon Nachman

    Beyond the Expected host, Michael Bernstein, sits down with Sharon Nachman MD, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Stony Brook Children's Hospital and Associate Dean for Research in the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. Dr. Nachman is an international leader in the area of pediatric infectious diseases and the treatment of children with AIDS, flu and measles. She has been the principal investigator of more than 30 clinical trials of promising medicines for patients treated at Stony Brook University Hospital. These include international trials in areas such as new vaccines, Lyme disease, and AIDS. She also directs the Maternal Child HIV/AIDS Program. In this episode, Michael talks to Sharon about the international health crisis brought on by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, the impact of the new New York State vaccine law on Long Island's school districts and discusses vaccines and immunizations and if vaccines are truly safe; what children and their families should know and how can they prepare; and what are some complications/symptoms that can occur if children are not vaccinated.

    Jazzing Up the Neighborhood | Professor Thomas Manuel

    Jazzing Up the Neighborhood | Professor Thomas Manuel

    Jazz Artist-In-Residence, Thomas Manuel, may have been at a crossroads the year he completed his D.M.A. at Stony Brook in 2016; if not for an unexpected intervention by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization in Stony Brook. A Newsday article published in May of 2014 entitled, “Tom Manuel has a collection. Now all he needs is a museum,” brought them together, which led to Tom emerging as founding president of The Jazz Loft in Stony Brook Village that same year. It was serendipitous: Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s Gloria Rocchio, saw the story and immediately called him to offer him space to start a museum and Jazz entertainment venue in an empty firehouse building in historic Stony Brook Village. The rest, as they say, is history. In this podcast episode, Beyond the Expected host, Michael Bernstein, will explore Tom’s trajectory as an endowed Jazz Artist in Residence at Stony Brook University, his work with young jazz musicians, and his contributions to this popular community hot spot. He may even convince Tom to smoke a jazz jam while he’s at it.
