Join Us

We are happy to have researchers take advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities including faculty, researchers, students and collaborators from academia and industry alike. There will be a small fee to do so to cover the cost of consumables, and any maintenance, but we will provide as much training and support as possible. Please look through our Facilities pages and contact us if you have any further questions.

To make our facilities as accessible as possible, we have secured overnight rooms in The Towers at CCNY for visiting researchers. These are situated next door to the ASRC building (401 West 130th Street, New York, NY 10027), and are available at a reduced rate to ASRC visitors. There are a limited number of rooms available, so please contact us in advance and we will try to accommodate guests where possible.

For room availability and pricing please contact Reishma Kistow (
