The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center brings the nation’s leading urban public university to a landmark moment in its multibillion-dollar commitment to innovative science. The ASRC focuses on CUNY initiatives in five dynamic fields of applied science: Nanoscience, Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience, and Environmental Sciences. Through its innovative architectural design, the center reflects a uniquely collaborative culture, where scientists work across disciplines to take on some of global science’s most vital and tantalizing challenges. >

Great Universities Need Great Science
The ASRC is the culmination of a decade of unprecedented investment in science research and education at the nation’s leading urban public university. The new flagship research center will be a catalyst for that commitment and a renewal of CUNY’s legacy of world-class discovery.
