  • CCNY Study Redefines Ecological Model

    In a study that could alter traditional notions in the fields of ecology and evolutionary biology, three City College of New York researchers present results indicating that competition between two species can lead to the geographic isolation of one of them. The finding by biologists Eliecer E. Gutiérrez, Robert A. Boria and Robert P. Anderson is the cover story in the August issue of the Swedish-published journal “Ecography” under the title, “Can biotic interactions cause allopatry? Niche models, competition, and distributions of South American mouse opossums.”

  • Unmet Dental Care Needs Prevalent Among Older Adults

    Nearly nine out of 10 older adults may need urgent dental care, however, just over half will see a dentist in a timely manner, a study of residents in naturally occurring retirement communities in New York City finds. Affordability, transportation and organizational issues were the biggest barriers to treatment, said lead author Theresa Montini, an assistant medical professor at The City College of New York’s Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education.

  • Isolating the Circuits that Control Voluntary Movement

    Extraordinarily complex networks of circuits that transmit signals from the brain to the spinal cord control voluntary movements. Researchers have been challenged to identify the controlling circuits, but they lacked the tools needed to dissect, at the neural level, the way the brain produces voluntary movements.

  • DNA of 200 NYC Students Reveals a Microcosm of the World

    The 200 college students who provided DNA samples in February for the New York City Student Ancestry Project, led by The City College of New York, today learned the results of an analysis of their genetic profile at an event held at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). The students, from eight institutions in the New York metropolitan area, had their samples analyzed by National Geographic’s Genographic Project.

  • CCNY Biology Major Making Composting More Sustainable

    Composting converts organic household waste into a source of nutrients that can enrich garden soil. However, the runoff it produces can be detrimental to the quality of surrounding bodies of water. City College of New York biology major Rebecca Panko has been investigating whether this runoff, or leachate, could be used in a more sustainable way.

  • CCNY Team Models Sudden Thickening of Complex Fluids

    A new model by a team of researchers with The City College of New York’s Benjamin Levich Institute may shed new understanding on the phenomenon known as discontinuous shear thickening (DST), in which the resistance to stirring takes a sudden jump. Easily observed in a ‘kitchen experiment’ by mixing together equal amounts of cornstarch and water, DST occurs because concentrated suspensions of hard particles in a liquid respond differently than normal fluids to shear forces.

  • Two CCNY History Students Identify Original Revolution Document

    When City College of New York graduate history student Emilie Gruchow came upon an old, hand-written manuscript in a box at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, where she works as an archivist, she knew what it was because she had read the printed version in class. What she – and the rest of the world – did not know for certain was the author’s identity.
