Overview

Unique in Suffolk County, the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Stony Brook Children's provides inpatient and outpatient consultation services for children with all types of infectious diseases — acute and chronic, covering pathogens ranging from bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic to Tuberculosis. We also offer a Travel Medicine Clinic in conjunction with the Department of Preventive Medicine. Our specialists, all of whom are board certified, not only provide advanced clinical services for sick children, but also teach medical students, residents and fellows about infectious diseases.Research is a key component of our work. Located at the epicenter of Lyme disease in North America, Stony Brook investigators are developing new diagnostic tests, vaccines and treatments for that disease as well as many others affecting children's health. We offer participation in investigations of new vaccines and new therapies for prevention and treatment of many childhood infectious diseases. As Suffolk County's only Pediatric-Maternal HIV/AIDS Center, we also have an extensive basic and clinical research program, bringing cutting edge therapies to the region.
