"2023 Science Division Graduation"Join Science Division students in celebrating their achievement.
The Division of Science at City College has a proud legacy and an exciting future. Ten Nobel Laureates studied science and mathematics at CCNY. Our faculty conduct cutting edge research on everything from climate change to structural biology to sustainable energy, and everything in between. City College students, even as undergraduates, have an unprecedented opportunity to work in these labs. In the past 8 years the Division has produced two Rhodes Scholars and several Goldwater and Truman scholars, as well as graduates who have gone on to the most prestigious graduate schools, supported by grants from the National Science Foundation to pursue their research.

Dr. Carnaval studies deforestation in the Amazon.
The global climate crisis has altered every ecosystem on planet Earth. In the Amazon, the rate of change is accelerating. The Amazon is home to more than 10% of all named and plant and vertebrate species. It is the core of biogeographic realm that is home to about one-third of all known species. Habitat conversion – driven by logging, forest fires, and canopy clearing, threaten this biodiversity. Global warming, climate variability, and extreme weather events amplify these threats. City College of New York biologist Ana Carnaval along with collaborators from multiple institutions in North
Dr. Green receives EMSL research award.
City College of New York chemist Michael Green and his colleague Alisher M Kariev have received a research award from The Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) for research to be carried out in 2023. Twenty awards were granted to research teams across the country. Awardees will study resources for carbon storage, model water systems, and examine biological systems as bioenergy sources, among other projects. EMSL, at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, is run by the Department of Energy and is one of 28 U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facilities.
