Researchers link genes and motor skills development

Genes for many may be widely associated with determining certain traits and characteristics. Now a study co-led by John H. Martin of The CUNY School of Medicine at The City College of New York is demonstrating that they could also influence neural motor skills. This could lead to new insights in the treatment of motor skills impairments such as Cerebral Palsy. Read More »
manganese dioxide-zinc battery

City College engineers produce long lasting, energy density battery

A new generation of manganese dioxide-zinc batteries with unprecedented cycle life and energy density is the latest innovation at The City College of New York-based CUNY Energy Institute. The discovery has made the common household battery suitable for large grid storage applications. Read More »

CCNY physicists master unexplored electron property

While the charge and spin properties of electrons are widely utilized in modern day technologies such as transistors and memories, another aspect of the subatomic particle has long remained uncharted. This is the “valley” property which has potential for realizing a new class of technology termed “valleytronics” – similar to electronics (charge) and spintronics (spin). This property arises from the fact that the electrons in the crystal occupy different positions that are quantum mechanically distinct. Read More »

Experts explain origins of topographic relief on Earth, Mars and Titan

The surfaces of Earth, Mars, and Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, have all been scoured by rivers. Yet despite this similarity and the amazingly Earth-like landscapes of Titan complete with valleys, lakes, and mountains, researchers led by City College of New York geologist Benjamin Black report new evidence that the origins of the topography there and on Mars are different from on Earth.

Big Data Analysis Hernan Makse

CCNY-led team breaks down social networking behavior

New big-data analytics by a City College of New York-led team suggests that both an individual’s economic status and how they are likely to react to issues and policies can be inferred by their position in social networks.  The study could be useful in maximizing the effects of large-scale economic stimulus policies.

CCNY, TechnoVax translational research leads to potential Zika virus vaccine

Preclinical results of research by City College of New York scientists and TechnoVax, Inc. in animal models demonstrate favorable outcomes in developing a vaccine against the mosquito-borne Zika virus. The results were announced by Tarrytown, New York-based TechnoVax, a biotechnology developer of novel vaccines whose proprietary virus-like particle (VLP) is the center of the research. Read More »
Photonic hypercrystals

CCNY physicists demonstrate photonic hypercrystals for control of light-matter interaction

Control of light-matter interaction is central to fundamental phenomena and technologies such as photosynthesis, lasers, LEDs and solar cells. City College of New York researchers have now demonstrated a new class of artificial media called photonic hypercrystals that can control light-matter interaction in unprecedented ways. Read More »
Salk Scholars 2017

City College dominates Salk awards again

For the second year running, The City College of New York is the recipient of four of the eight Jonas E. Salk Scholarships awarded by The City University of New York this year.  The scholarships recognize exceptional students who plan careers in medicine and the biological sciences. As Salk Scholars, Marisol Cortés, Anika Nabila, Christopher Reid and Violeta Contreras Ramirez will each receive a stipend of $8,000 to be appropriated over three or four years of medical studies.
