$4.27m grant boosts expert John Martin’s spinal cord injury research

For people with cervical spinal cord injuries, regaining hand function is the highest priority. Currently there are no effective treatments for people living with paralysis or profound weakness after SCI. A new $4.27 million grant to John Martin, medical professor at the CUNY School of Medicine at The City College of New York, from the New York State Department of Health is aimed at boosting research.

CCNY researchers take snap shots of wandering electrons in diamonds

A breakthrough experiment by a City College of New York team led by physicist Carlos Meriles could potentially lead to room-temperature quantum information processing in diamonds and optical data storage in three dimensions. Meriles and his researchers successfully demonstrated charge transport between Nitrogen-Vacancy color centers in diamonds. The team developed a novel multi-color scanning microscopy technique to visualize the charge transport. Read More »
