A former professor of molecular biology at Washington University in St. Louis has been named the new president of New York's Stony Brook University. Samuel L. Stanley Jr. will take over as president on July 1, following a unanimous vote by the State University of New York's board of trustees.

Stanley, who has been a director of the National Institutes of Health-funded Midwest Regional Center for Excellence for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases, called his new appointment a "dream job."

Considered a flagship in the state university system, Stony Brook University encompasses 200 buildings on 1,600 acres on eastern Long Island. It has nearly 24,000 students and 2,100 faculty.
