CCNY study breaks Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET) distance limit

Using engineered nanocomposite structures called metamaterials, a City College of New York-led research team reports the ability to measure a significant increase in the energy transfer between molecules. Reported in the journal ACS Photonics, this breakthrough breaks the Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) distance limit of ~10-20 nanometers, and leads to the possibility of measuring larger molecular assemblies.  Read More »

On-demand room-temperature single photon array: a quantum communication breakthrough by CCNY physicists

Physicists at The City College of New York have used atomically thin two-dimensional materials to realize an array of quantum emitters operating at room temperature that can be integrated into next generation quantum communication systems. Researchers from the groups of City College Professors Carlos Meriles and Vinod Menon developed for the first time an array of on-demand single photon emitters that operate at room temperature.

$945K NSF grant for CCNY's David Jeruzalmi

As scientists have learned from working on diseases like HIV and tuberculosis, sometimes the best way to develop a new therapy is to think about how it might work in combination with other therapies. In order to do that, it’s important to identify, visualize, and modify new targets so a disease can be attacked from multiple vantage points. Read More »

Latina Researchers Network increases pipeline for future scholars

The City College of New York’s Kaliris Y. Salas-Ramirez, assistant medical professor of the Sophie Davis Program of Biomedical Sciences at the CUNY School of Medicine, is helping bring together undergraduate and senior researchers interested in enhancing the voice of Latinos for the 2018 Biennial Latina Researchers Network Conference, August 23-25. This year’s conference is titled “Collective Actions Towards Healing and Change” and will be held at John Jay College. Read More »
Undergrads at a variety of colleges who were student fellows in the B3 Research Experience for Undergraduates program at CCNY

A rare chance for undergrads to “do” science instead of just study it: B3 REU

This summer, ten pre-med and science majors (four of them from The City College of New York) got out of the lecture hall and into the lab to get hands-on with science. Read More »
