CCNY Science Facilities
Center for Discovery and Innovation
CUNY Advanced Science Research Center
Located on the south end of the City College campus in Upper Manhattan, the striking, 200,000-square-foot ASRC building embodies a bold vision of 21st Century discovery. At the center’s core is a world-class facility designed to inspire an innovative approach to the scientific method itself, one that links a new wave of talented scientists with hundreds of top researchers from CUNY campuses across the city.
Science Division Facilities
With a major investment of more than a quarter billion dollars from the State of New York, the construction of world-class science research facilities is underway at the CCNY campus. Two new science research buildings – The CCNY Center for Discovery and Innovation for CCNY's science research program and the CUNY-wide Advanced Science Research Center -- serve scientists from throughout the City University system. These centers yield nearly 400,000 square feet for state-of-the-art laboratories and offices, imaging facilities, Electron Microscopy vivarium, as well as a café and lecture hall. Together with the adjacent New York Structural Biology Center, the buildings form a research hub that will provide outstanding opportunities for faculty and science students.
Currently, most of the research facilities of the Science division are located in the 360,000 sq. ft. Robert E. Marshak Science Building. The construction of a new vivarium adjacent to the building is near completion. The Marshak building has undergone major renovation of its structural and HVAC systems.
CCNY Electron Microscopy CenterThe Electron Microscopy Center is a shared core facility whose primary goal is to promote scientific support in biological and materials research by providing training in basic operation of the scanning and the transmission electron microscopes. Room MR-519.
The Division of Science Computer LabThis new facility located in the lower level of Marshak houses 40 PC's, two projection screens, two wireless LCD projectors, and a wired lectern. It is used for PC-based instructional classes, such as SCI20000, and is also open to students for general computer use everyday from 9am to 7pm. Room MR-044.
Science Computing ServicesThe Science Computing Services facility, under the direction of Mr. Karl Li, provides technical support and leadership for all aspects of information technology in the Division of Science. Room MR-302.
