CUNY Nano Day 2017

CUNY Nano Day, hosted by the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center Nanoscience Initiative, is aimed at bringing together the nanoscience research community from across The City University of New York to showcase research activities and promote collaborations. 

This free event, which included research talks, poster presentations, and a scientific image competition, was attended by over 90 delegates from across the university system, including a large representation of CUNY graduate students and early career researchers. 

Prizes were presented for winners in the categories of best talk, best poster, and best image. Dr. Rein Ulijn, Director of the Nanoscience Initiative, evaluated each of the 7 talks and and nominated a winner based on scientific content, understanding of research project, and delivery. All delegates were asked to vote for their favorite poster presentation and favorite image submitted to our image competition.
