Professor Maria Tamargo is new National Academy of Engineering member. Earlier this year Maria was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering, for "forging the way toward an inclusive science and engineering research community, and for contributions to molecular-beam epitaxy of semiconductor materials.” This week (Feb 28) at the annual meeting, they introduced the new members and will hold a ceremony in person at next year’s meeting. Congratulations Maria. Read More

11/29/2022:The City College of New York has been awarded two grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) totaling $6M to support recent bachelor’s degree holders and Ph.D. students with research and training in biochemistry and bio-inspired nanoscience. (Read more)
Drs. Ruth E. Stark and David Jeruzalmi received The RaMP award to support recently graduated bachelor’s degree students with full-time research and training in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Bio-design, also called B-Cubed.
Drs. Ruth E. Stark and Stephen O’Brien received The Nanoscience Award to support the research of doctoral students in bio-inspired nanoscience; the project is named NanoBioNYC.
Dr. Kevin Gardner and Dr. Ruth Stark received a National Institute of Health (NIH) grant to build a helium recycler for the City College of New York and the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at CCNY. Why is this important? Helium is a finite resource used in MRIs and a lot of scientific research. With the price of helium rising over the past few years, the impact on the medical and scientific community was becoming a concern.
