The ASRC @ 5: Showcasing Interdisciplinary Excellence

The ASRC is designed to inspire and enable interdisciplinary research that brings together scientists from across CUNY’s 25 campuses and beyond to create solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

As we mark our fifth year of work, we invite fellow faculty, staff, and students from across CUNY and beyond to join us in exploring what we’ve accomplished together to advance interdisciplinary research, and how it can be used as a vehicle to move us forward.

Joining us for special talks are world-renown physicist and engineer Nader Engheta and cancer biologist and Nobel Laureate Harold Varmus. Also hear from the following CUNY researchers who have demonstrated excellence in interdisciplinary research:

  • Xi Chen, ASRC Nanoscience Initiative & Department of Chemical Engineering, City College of New York
  • Jean Gaffney, Department of Natural Sciences, Baruch College
  • Carmen Melendez-Vasquez, Department of Biological Sciences, Hunter College
  • William Solecki, Department of Geography and Environmental Science & Institute for Sustainable Cities, Hunter College

Please register to attend here.
